This talk will dive into how to use django-watchman to enhance your monitoring coverage. Topics include:

  • How to install and configure django-watchman
  • What monitoring checks it provides out of the box
  • How authentication works
  • The three ways to use django-watchman: API, dashboard, and management command
  • How to integrate django-watchman with automated tools like Pingdom
  • How to write your own custom django-watchman checks
