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.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
