Test::Health - Perl API to process tests and send an e-mail report in case of failures


This module is only Pod.

See the Pod of script for details of usage.

For information regarding extending this distribution, check the other Pods available.


Test-Health is a Perl distribution created to implement a "poor's man" health check API.

By using standard test modules like Test-Simple, you can implement your tests and use Test-Health to run those tests, collect results and send an e-mail in the case any test fails.

This is usefull if you want to implement a simple health check on your system, but don't have a monitoring system like Nagios (or don't want to use one). Once you have the test files, it is pretty straighforward to send an e-mail in case of problems.

Be sure to check the Pod documentation include in this distribution for more details.


Test-Health also relies on good modules from CPAN like:
