API offering health metrics for the ``django-server-guardian`` app.

Project description

API offering health metrics for the Django Server Guardian app.

Installation and Usage

To get the latest stable release from PyPi

pip install django-server-guardian-api

To get the latest commit from GitHub

pip install -e git+git://

Add server_guardian_api to your INSTALLED_APPS


Add the server_guardian_api URLs to your

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^server-guardian-api/', include('server_guardian_api.urls')),

As a simple auth method add the security token as described in the README of the Django Server Guardian to your settings as SERVER_GUARDIAN_SECURITY_TOKEN

SERVER_GUARDIAN_SECURITY_TOKEN = 'asd0hb42t92-example-token-39gh1g3-91hfosj325'

Add the SERVER_GUARDIAN_PROCESSORS setting where you’re endpoint metrics are defined.


The functions defined in this setting must return a dictionary in the following format

    'status': 'OK', # must be one of: "OK", "WARNING", "DANGER"
    'info': 'additional text describing the status. e.g. type of error',

That mean, your API endpoint will, if all is correct, return something like this

        'label': 'mail_queue',
        'status': 'OK',
        'info': "No deferred email queued. That's great!",
        'label': 'other_metric',
