I have two employees who go into TinyPilot's office for a few hours each evening to ship out new orders. The Internet went out at the office Monday, but I didn't find out until an employee got there and couldn't work.

Now, I have @cronhubio to proactively alert me of outages.


I looked into other uptime monitoring solutions that were more geared toward "heartbeat monitoring" (e.g. UptimeRobot) because I wasn't sure if Cronhub would be the best fit, but Cronhub had a much better documentation and a UI that showed me more of what I needed to know.

I published the little Ansible role I'm using to set up the heartbeat server with @cronhubio github.com/mtlynch/ansible-rol
