A TYPO3 installation is a complex mix of TYPO3-core, TYPO3-setup and extensions which makes every installation unique. Therefore it is difficult to automatically detect the health of a TYPO3 installation, especially when new security concerns arise or different systems, extensions or partners are interacting. Currently available system-monitoring software, like nagios, can check the hardware state and much more but not the proper setup of TYPO3 and the correct function of the whole website.
Given this situation n@work Hamburg andnetworkteam Hamburg+Kiel joined forces to develop a flexible TYPO3 centralized monitoring system. Including the basic functionality known from other system monitoring software we intend to add the following new features:
- Testing and monitoring of remote TYPO3 installations (core, setup and extensions)
- Include integration tests (based on Selenium)
- Flexible and comfortable management of tests as TYPO3-records
- Extensibility of the whole system.
