Welcome to the Appclacks documentation
Appclacks is a cloud monitoring platform allowing users to create, manage and run various health checks to monitor the health of websites and infrastructures.
Appclacks can monitor public endpoints by executing configured health checks on them from multiple point of presences. But unlike alternatives, Appclacks can also be used to monitor private infrastructures. The prober used by Appclacks named Cabourotte is a free software that you can host on your private infrastructure and plug on the Appclacks API to autoconfigure it.
This flexibility allows you to manage your health checks globally without having to use a different tool for public and for private infrastructures.
As previously stated, Appclacks prober is a free software. + Appclacks also exposes the metrics of the health checks executed on the cloud platform as Prometheus metrics (same format) on its API. This means that you can integrate the Appclacks cloud platform with your existing monitoring system.
All actions on the Appclacks cloud platform are performed through its API. We know at Appclacks the importance of good tooling for users, and that’s why it’s one of the primary focuses of the Appclacks team.
We provide a full-featured CLI and a Terraform provider to let you efficiently configure the platform.
