Heartbeat monitoring: Why is it important?
Heartbeat monitoring: Meaning
When you create a service and expose a set of endpoints to provide API access to that service, you’ll almost certainly need to track their availability and response times, in addition to ensuring their functionality. Heartbeat Monitoring can assist you in regularly monitoring your services day in and day out so that you can genuinely know when “something is down” or just “not performing”. It is a tried-and-true mechanism of tracking a device’s or software system’s health by giving regular heartbeat events to a remote monitoring service.
Monitor to see if your scripts, agents, workers, and daemons are operating continuously and according to plan. For each heartbeat monitor, you will receive a different ping URL. In addition, you may check whether your task can communicate with your server by sending a straightforward HTTP request to the URL’s “display name” endpoint.
