Installation and setup

Basic installation

This package should be installed in an existing Laravel application. If you’re not familiar with Laravel head over to the official documentation to learn how to set up and use this amazing framework.

From the directory of an existing Laravel application you can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-server-monitor:^1.0

You’ll need to register the service provider:

// config/app.php

'providers' => [
    // ...

You can publish the migrations with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\ServerMonitor\ServerMonitorServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

After the migration has been published you can create the hosts and checkstables by running the migrations:

php artisan migrate

To publish the config file to config/server-monitor.php run:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\ServerMonitor\ServerMonitorServiceProvider" --tag="config"

By default, the configuration looks like this:

return [

     * These are the checks that can be performed on your servers. You can add your own
     * checks. The only requirement is that they should extend the
     * `Spatie\ServerMonitor\Checks\CheckDefinitions\CheckDefinition` class.
    'checks' => [
        'diskspace' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\CheckDefinitions\Diskspace::class,
        'elasticsearch' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\CheckDefinitions\Elasticsearch::class,
        'memcached' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\CheckDefinitions\Memcached::class,
        'mysql' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\CheckDefinitions\MySql::class,

     * The default value for how often the checks will run,
     * after the last successful one.
    'next_run_in_minutes' => env('SERVER_MONITOR_NEXT_RUN_IN_MINUTES', 10),

     * The performance of the package can be increased by allowing a high number
     * of concurrent ssh connections. Set this to a lower value if you're
     * getting weird errors running the check.
    'concurrent_ssh_connections' => 5,

     * This string will be appended to the ssh command generated by the package.
    'ssh_command_suffix' => '',

    'notifications' => [

        'notifications' => [
            Spatie\ServerMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CheckSucceeded::class => [],
            Spatie\ServerMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CheckRestored::class => ['slack'],
            Spatie\ServerMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CheckWarning::class => ['slack'],
            Spatie\ServerMonitor\Notifications\Notifications\CheckFailed::class => ['slack'],

         * To avoid burying you in notifications, we'll only send one every given amount
         * of minutes when a check keeps emitting warning or keeps failing.
        'throttle_failing_notifications_for_minutes' => 60,

        'mail' => [
            'to' => '',

        'slack' => [
            'webhook_url' => env('SERVER_MONITOR_SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL'),

         * Here you can specify the notifiable to which the notifications should be sent. The default
         * notifiable will use the variables specified in this config file.
        'notifiable' => \Spatie\ServerMonitor\Notifications\Notifiable::class,

         * The date format used in notifications.
        'date_format' => 'd/m/Y',

     * To add or modify behaviour to the `Check` model you can specify your
     * own model here. The only requirement is that they should
     * extend the `Check` model provided by this package.
    'check_model' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\Models\Check::class,

     * Right before running a check it's process will be given to this class. Here you
     * can perform some last minute manipulations on it before it will
     * actually be run.
     * This class should implement Spatie\ServerMonitor\Manipulators\Manipulator
    'process_manipulator' => Spatie\ServerMonitor\Manipulators\Passthrough::class,


After performing the basic installation schedule the server-monitor:run-checks command to run every minute.

// app/Console/Kernel.php

protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
