Heartbeat for Rails Apps

Heartbeat is a web interface for maintaining and monitoring your Ruby on Rails applications. With Heartbeat, you can monitor the uptime of URLs and run your application's rake tasks from a single web page. No server-side install is required and it is inherently extensible since it executes any rake task that you specify.

Heartbeat was created by Derek Haynes and Charles Brian Quinn of the  Highgroove Studios team for Rails Day 2006. Both guys are well-known in the Atlanta Ruby community and user group. The evolution of the app over 24 hours of commit messages is interesting.
