Dead Man's Snitch

Sep 25, 2018

Dead Man’s Snitch is a cron job monitoring service that keeps an eye on your scheduled tasks and notifies you when something doesn’t happen. If you have daily backups, monthly emails, or hourly cron jobs you need to monitor then Dead Man’s Snitch is for you.

Many of us have been bit by a backup failing or a monthly email not sending; Dead Man’s Snitch solves that problem. Creating a snitch is easy. Give it a name, choose your interval, and tell us who we should alert for each job.

You can monitor for cron, Heroku Scheduler, or any scheduled task. If they don't execute when they should, Dead Man's Snitch alerts you.

Want push notifications too? Download the app today for iOS or Android.

We're excited to announce that Dead Man's Snitch is now easier to use with your entire team. Gone are the days of sharing a single login or using a shared mailing list for alerts. Now, everyone on your team can have their own login and personalized alert settings.
