1. AI Web Service Health Checks Using DigitalOcean Uptime Check


    In order to set up Web Service Health Checks using DigitalOcean, you would use the digitalocean.UptimeCheck resource. This resource provides a way to monitor the availability of your web services and ensure they are responding correctly. It periodically sends requests to your web service and checks if it is up and running.

    The checks can be configured to run from multiple regions, check for specific response codes, include headers, and more. In case your service goes down or starts responding with unexpected results, you can also set up alerts with digitalocean.UptimeAlert to notify you.

    Below is a program that sets up a basic HTTP Uptime Check on a DigitalOcean Droplet. This Pulumi program is intended to be run in an environment where DigitalOcean is the cloud provider. Make sure that you have set up your Pulumi stack with the required DigitalOcean credentials and configurations.

    In this program:

    • We create a digitalocean.UptimeCheck resource to monitor the availability of a web service using an HTTP check.
    • We configure it to run from a specific region.
    • We set it to monitor an HTTP endpoint (replace your_website_url with the actual URL you want to monitor).
    • The health check will be enabled by default, and it will run at intervals as specified in the check (which we'll set in the properties).
    import pulumi import pulumi_digitalocean as digitalocean # Create a DigitalOcean Uptime Check for a web service. uptime_check = digitalocean.UptimeCheck("web-service-health-check", type="http", # Type of the uptime check (http, https, tcp) target="https://your_website_url", # The target URL to monitor enabled=True, # Enable the uptime check regions=["nyc3"] # Regions to perform the check from (e.g., "nyc3") ) # Optionally, set up an alert policy for this check. uptime_alert = digitalocean.UptimeAlert("web-service-alert", checkId=uptime_check.id, # Reference to the uptime check to attach the alert to type="Email", # Type of alert (Email, Slack, etc.) email="your_email@example.com", # Email address to notify if the check fails comparison="GreaterThan", # Comparison type for triggering the alert period="5m", # Evaluation period for the check threshold=5) # Threshold for alerting (e.g., 5 failures) # Export the URL we're monitoring pulumi.export("monitored_url", uptime_check.target)

    This program monitors your website and notifies you via email if the service is down for more than 5 consecutive minutes. The target of the UptimeCheck should be the URL of the web service you wish to monitor. Be sure to replace your_website_url with your actual service URL and your_email@example.com with the email address where you want to receive notifications.

    Once you've replaced the placeholders and run this Pulumi program, DigitalOcean will start to check the uptime of your specified service regularly from the "nyc3" region. If anything seems amiss, such as the service returning an error code or not responding, the UptimeAlert resource will trigger an email to be sent to the address you specified.

    Keep in mind that in a production setting, you would want to monitor from multiple regions and potentially use a mix of different check types (such as both HTTP and TCP), depending on the requirements of your service. Adjust the regions, threshold, period, and other properties as needed to customize the checks for your web service.
