The Dead Man's Snitch API allows developers to access and manage snitches, which are used to monitor scheduled tasks. This API could be used to automate the developer's monitoring workflow or build a custom monitoring dashboard. Dead Man's Snitch is a service that monitors scheduled tasks (e.g. daily backups, monthly emails, hourly cron jobs) to make sure that they actually run and alerts the user if they fail to execute.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
