Latest Version on Packagist Software License Build Status SensioLabsInsight Quality Score StyleCI Total Downloads

Laravel-uptime-monitor is a powerful, easy to configure uptime monitor. It will notify you when your site is down (and when it comes back up). You can also be notified a few days before an SSL certificate on one of your sites expires. Under the hood, the package leverages Laravel native notifications, so it's easy to use Slack, Telegram or your preferred notification provider.

You'll find extensive documentation on It includes detailed info on how to install and use the package.

If you're not familiar with Laravel, but still want to use our uptime monitor, take a look at the uptime-monitor-app repo which contains a stand alone version of this package.

Reading the config file of this package is a good way to quickly get a feel of what laravel-uptime-monitor can do. Here's the content of the config file:

return [

     * You can get notified when specific events occur. Out of the box you can use 'mail'
     * and 'slack'. Of course you can also specify your own notification classes.
    'notifications' => [

        'notifications' => [
            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\UptimeCheckFailed::class => ['slack'],
            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\UptimeCheckRecovered::class => ['slack'],
            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\UptimeCheckSucceeded::class => [],

            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CertificateCheckFailed::class => ['slack'],
            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CertificateExpiresSoon::class => ['slack'],
            \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CertificateCheckSucceeded::class => [],

         * The location from where you are running this Laravel application. This location will be 
         * mentioned in all notifications that will be sent.
        'location' => '',

         * To keep reminding you that an uptime check failed, notifications
         * will be resent every given number of minutes.
        'resend_uptime_check_failed_notification_every_minutes' => 60,

        'mail' => [
            'to' => '',

        'slack' => [
            'webhook_url' => env('UPTIME_MONITOR_SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL'),

         * Here you can specify the notifiable to which the notifications should be sent. The default
         * notifiable will use the variables specified in this config file.
        'notifiable' => \Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Notifications\Notifiable::class,

         * The date format used in notifications.
        'date_format' => 'd/m/Y',

    'uptime_check' => [
         * When the uptime check could reach the url of a monitor it will pass the response to this class
         * If this class determines the response is valid, the uptime check will be regarded as succeeded.
         * You can use any implementation of Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Helpers\UptimeResponseCheckers\UptimeResponseChecker here.
        'response_checker' => Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Helpers\UptimeResponseCheckers\LookForStringChecker::class,

         * An uptime check will be performed if the last check was performed more than the
         * given number of minutes ago. If you change this setting you have to manually
         * update the `uptime_check_interval_in_minutes` value of your existing monitors.
         * When an the uptime check failed we'll check the uptime every time `monitor:check-uptime` runs
         * regardless of this setting.
        'run_interval_in_minutes' => 5,

         * To speed up the uptime checking process uptime monitor can perform the uptime check of several
         * monitors concurrently. Set this to a lower value if you're getting weird errors
         * running the uptime check.
        'concurrent_checks' => 10,

         * The uptime check will fail if the configured url does not respond after the
         * given number of seconds.
        'timeout_per_site' => 10,

         * Fire `Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Events\MonitorFailed` event only after
         * the given number of uptime checks have consecutively failed for a monitor.
        'fire_monitor_failed_event_after_consecutive_failures' => 2,

         * When reaching out to sites this user agent will be used.
        'user_agent' => 'spatie/laravel-uptime-monitor uptime checker',

         * When reaching out to the sites these headers will be added.
        'additional_headers' => []

    'certificate_check' => [

         * The `Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Events\SslExpiresSoon` event will fire
         * when a certificate is found whose expiration date is in
         * the next number of given days.
        'fire_expiring_soon_event_if_certificate_expires_within_days' => 10,

     * To add or modify behaviour to the Monitor model you can specify your
     * own model here. The only requirement is that it should extend
     * `Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Models\Monitor`.
     'monitor_model' => Spatie\UptimeMonitor\Models\Monitor::class,
