Healthchecks.io is a service for monitoring cron jobs and similar periodic processes. It listens for HTTP requests ("pings") from your services. It keeps silent as long as pings arrive on time. It alerts you in Slack as soon as a ping does not arrive on time.Monitor Cron JobsHealthchecks.io monitoring is a great fit for cron jobs and cron-like systems (systemd timers, Jenkins build jobs, Windows Scheduled Tasks, wp-cron, uwsgi cron-like interface, Heroku Scheduler, ...). A failed cron job often has no immediate visible consequences, and can go unnoticed for a long time. Examples:• Filesystem backups • Database backups • Daily, weekly, monthly report emails • SSL renewals • Business data import and sync • Antivirus scans • Dynamic DNS updatesMonitor Processes, Services, ServersHealthchecks.io monitoring can be used for lightweight server monitoring: ensuring a particular system service, or the server as a whole is alive and healthy. Write a shell script that checks for a specific condition, and pings Healthchecks.io if successful. Run the shell script regularly. Examples:• Check a specific docker container is running • Check a specific application process is running • Check database replication lag • Check system resources: free disk, free RAM, ... • Send simple, unconditional "I'm alive" messages from your server (or your NAS, router, Raspberry Pi, ...)

We store the information provided by you (e.g., check names) and collected by Healthchecks.io (e.g., downtimes) for as long as your account is active. Healthchecks.io removes inactive accounts after one year of inactivity.
Data archiving and removal policy
We do not keep your information for longer than is necessary.
Inactive accounts. If your Healthchecks.io account is inactive for more than a year, we send an inactive account notification to your email address. If the account is still inactive 30 days after the notification, we close your account automatically.
Database backups. We keep database backups for up to 2 months. Therefore, when you delete information from your account or close your account completely, your information can still be recovered from our database backups for up to 2 months.
Data storage policy
Although no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
Automated, you can delete your account from service's Account Settings page. Alternatively, you can ask firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
