This module integrates with mod_host_status_check to provide heartbeats at regular intervals.
The only time you will generally want this, is if you are using mod_component_client to run Prosody as an external component of another Prosody server that has mod_host_status_check loaded and waiting for heartbeats.
Alternatively you can run this on the same Prosody host as mod_http_host_status_check and it will simply update a variable periodically to indicate that Prosody and timers are functional.
The following configuration options are supported:
-- The number of seconds to wait between sending heartbeats status_check_heartbeat_interval = 5 -- Set this to "remote" (the default) if you are using mod_component_client -- and you want to send a heartbeat to a remote server. Otherwise -- set it to "local" to send to mod_host_status_check on the same server. status_check_heartbeat_mode = "remote"
Works with Prosody 0.9.x and later.
