Full-stack Django application monitoring with django-watchman with Michael Warkentin

Presentation on dimanche at 12:30 après-midi to 12:40 après-midi in Room 1130.

Monitoring your websites can be tricky. Many people set up a Pingdom endpoint on their home page, and call it a day; however this doesn't guarantee that all of the back end systems required for a functioning site are actually working.

This talk will dive into how to use django-watchman to enhance your monitoring coverage. Topics include:

  • How to install and configure django-watchman
  • What monitoring checks it provides out of the box
  • How authentication works
  • The three ways to use django-watchman: API, dashboard, and management command
  • How to integrate django-watchman with automated tools like Pingdom
  • How to write your own custom django-watchman checks
