PulseChecks

Semonto's PulseChecks help you monitor whether periodical scripts are being executed successfully. The checks also enable you to keep an eye on a server behind a firewall, a complex NAT situation or a server without an active webserver. Instead of calling and testing your server, your server will ping Semonto frequently. If we don't receive a pulse on time, we will send you a notification. Simple and efficient. Ideal for database servers.

Detect silent failure

Maybe your server is behind a firewall or has no active or exposed webserver, which makes traditional monitoring impossible. Then nobody will know if something goes wrong. Our PulseChecks turn the process around. Instead of monitoring incidents, we monitor the lack of activity. If we do not receive a timely proof of life, you get alerted. This way you can detect silent failure that would otherwise remain unnoticed. You can fix the issue before it can turn into a problem.

Get notified

Make sure your server or periodical script pings Semonto on time, by calling the URL. Once Semonto has received the first pulse of your server, the PulseCheck is activated. If Semonto does not receive a time before the given timeout, we will alert you.
