Start heart beating,

$ node app.js

API

Connection

Connection string to MongoDB to store heartbeat results.

connection: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/heartbeatdb',

Interval

The period of time between heartbeats,

interval: 5000

Monitor

Monitoring options. There are few strategies of heartbeating implemented now.

HTTP

HTTP/HTTPS requests, measure the request execution time and compare to !== 200 response code.

http: [
    {
        url: 'https://likeastore.com'
    },
    {
        url: 'https://stage.likeastore.com'
    }
]

JSON

HTTP/HTTPS requests for JSON API's.

json: [
    {
        url: 'https://app.likeastore.com/api/monitor',
        response: {
            "app":"app.likeastore.com",
            "env":"production",
            "version":"0.0.52",
            "apiUrl":"/api"
        }
    }
],

MongoDB

For MongoDB checking, to run any query:

mongo: [
    {
        connection: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/likeastoredb',
        collections: ['users'],
        query: function (db, callback) {
            db.users.findOne({email: 'alexander.beletsky@gmail.com'}, callback);
        }
    }
]

Resolve

Resolves given dns name into ip addresses and pings each address.

resolve: [
    {
        name: 'google.com'
    }
]

Ping

Pings given ip address.

ping: [
    {
        ip: '37.139.9.95'
    }
]

Planned

Transport

To be able to send and receive emails and sms, mandrill and twilio accounts have to be setup.

Mandril token

Mandrill access token,

mandrill: {
    token: "mandrill_access_token"
},

Twilio token

Twilio access token,

twilio: {
    sid: "twilio_sid",
    token: "twilio_access_token"
}
