Healthchecks Integration

Healthchecks provides monitoring and alerting for when cronjobs fail. It is a free alternative to Cronitor and Dead Man’s Snitch.

How Healthchecks users benefit from PagerTree

Healthchecks triggers user defined alerts by monitoring cronjob checks. PagerTree acts as the dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules. PagerTree notifies them via email, sms, voice, and/or push notifications until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of Integration

The Healthchecks integration is one-way, meaning:

  • When a check is down in Healthchecks, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When a check comes back up in Healthchecks, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
