HTTP Healthcheck Integration Guide

HTTP Healthcheck supports Cron Monitoring to monitor nightly backups, weekly reports, cron jobs and background tasks and receive alerts when your tasks don't run on time.

What can Zenduty do for Nginx HTTP Healthcheck users?

With the Nginx HTTP Healthcheck Integration, periodic health checks which monitors the health of HTTP servers generate alerts if certains conditions are met; Zenduty then sends the new alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the HTTP Healthcheck alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific HTTP Healthcheck alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
