The service monitors specified online resources, including websites, email addresses, and domain names, and generates messages to specified user contacts if problems are found. It is intended to provide rapid detection of downtime or slow system response, with immediate alerts to trigger corrective action. Alert events and notification contact data are configured for the user account, then monitoring checks are conducted automatically.
API methods support account creation and configuration and creation of monitors for basic server ping, HTTP response, and FTP uptime. Methods also allow updating and deleting existing monitors, retrieving contact settings for a monitor, and reporting on event detection history.
