Project description

Simple Django app/framework to publish health check for monitoring purposes



pip install django_healthchecks


Add the following to your

url(r'^healthchecks/', include('django_healthchecks.urls')),

Add a setting with the available healthchecks:

    'postgresql': 'django_healthchecks.contrib.check_database',
    'cache_default': 'django_healthchecks.contrib.check_cache_default',
    'solr': 'your_project.lib.healthchecks.check_solr',

You can also include healthchecks over http. This is useful when you want to monitor if depending services are up:

    'my_microservice': '',

By default, http health checks will time out after 500ms. You can override this as follows:


By default the status code is always 200, you can change this to something else by using the HEALTH_CHECKS_ERROR_CODE setting:


You can also add some simple protection to your healthchecks via basic auth. This can be specified per check or a wildcard can be used *.

    '*': [('admin', 'pass')],
    'solr': [],
