Professional Web Site Monitoring Tool
Monitors your web sites... so you don't have to..
"... what does it look like? ..."
The following screen shots show a typical control panel layout. Figure 1 shows how you enter basic parameters such as e-mail address, password and summary of monitors already set up by you. An Add New button allows you to add more web sites for monitoring.
The configuration screen allows you to define the default frequency of the monitor and basic account information which will then be used to notify you if there is a problem with any of your servers.
You can specify an SMS contact number and E-mail address if required. These details will be used to contact you in the event of one or more servers being down. Wherever possible, the monitor will group messages and send them all at once so, for example, if you have specified 3 servers and they all go down at the same time then only one e-mail and one SMS notification will be issued.
A simple check-box allows SMS notifications to be enabled/disabled for all servers.
A list of sites being monitored for you is shown at the top of the screen along with summary information such as URL, status and monitor frequency.
Simply click the Configure button to modify individual monitor parameters or the Add New button to add new sites.
The date/time of last check is also displayed on this screen along with the number of SMS credits paid for.
(You must pay for SMS credits in advance at 0.25c (US) or 15p (UK) each.
Crediting your account with $12.50 will ensure up to 50 SMS notifications can be sent)
The Server definition screen allows you to define a specific server for monitoring.
This screen captures information such as the URL, server name or IP address of the server along with the method of interogation (HTTP request, PING, POP3 Etc.) and thetype of response expected. You can also define a "Content string" - The monitor will then scan any response from your server and search for this string. If not found then you will be notified that there may be a problem with the server.
This is useful for checking that complete web pages are being served to your visitors or for monitoring script or CGI responses.
E-mail and/or SMS alerts can be enabled/disabled for one or more servers you require monitoring.
*Please note that SMS notification is subject to an $0.25 / 15p charge per message, however this can be turned off using the control panel if not required.
E-mail notifications are free regardless of the number sent.
