django-health-check 0.2

a pluggable app that runs a full check on the deployment, using a number of plugins to check e.g. database, queue server, celery processes, etc.

Latest Version: 3.5.1


This project checks a number of backends, if they are able to connect and do a simple action, e.g. check out the django ORM backend:


class DjangoDatabaseBackend(BaseHealthCheckBackend):

def check_status(self):
obj = TestModel.objects.create(title="test")
obj.title = "newtest"
return True
except IntegrityError:
raise ServiceReturnedUnexpectedResult("Integrity Error")
except DatabaseError:
raise ServiceUnavailable("Database error")


The project is made using some of the same codes, that the django admin site uses - so when you have sucessfully written a new plugin, you register it to the pool, e.g.



Add this to

url(r'^ht/', include('health_check.urls'))

Add required apps:

(remember to add dependencies, e.g. djcelery - however you should have that already, if you have celery running)

Set up monitoring

E.g. add to pingdom - django-health-check will return HTTP 200 if everything is OK and HTTP 500 if *anything* is not working.
