Simple healthchecks (monitoring)


I just setup my own instance of healthchecks [0] also available as hosted service [1].
What this does is simply monitoring if systems regularly send alive pings and trigger an email
alert if that’s not the case.

What I like a lot is the very simple integration in the system that should be monitored. In bash
it’s for example:

curl --retry 3

I’m starting to use this in many of the services that I host.

My question is now if I can use this with MiaB as well? Can I setup MiaB to periodically
curl --retry 3

Adding this to confirm that the MiaB backups have been completed successfully would be
a great way to see that the system is up and well.
