Prosody 0.12 added an API allowing modules to report their status. This module allows reading these statuses via HTTP for use in monitoring.

$ curl http://prosody.localhost:5280/status
   "" : {
      "c2s" : {
         "message" : "Loaded",
         "type" : "core"


By default only access via localhost is allowed. This can be adjusted with http_status_allow_ips. The following example shows the default:

http_status_allow_ips = { "::1"; "" }

Access can also be granted to one IP range via CIDR notation:

http_status_allow_cidr = ""

The default for http_status_allow_cidr is empty.


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_http_status

For earlier versions see the documentation for installing 3rd party modules
