The service provides monitoring of websites and other online resources for continuous uptime, with alerts in case a resource becomes unresponsive. It allows creation of "probes" that interact with specified URLs at preset intervals and report back response status to the service. Probes set criteria for notification, including contact method and address, conditions to trigger notification, frequency of messages, etc.
API methods support basic operations for creating, reading, updating, and deleting monitoring rules (CRUD operations) including the resources monitored and responses to status detected. Methods also support retrieving and reporting on data such as uptime statistics and history of alerts.
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.
