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.
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.
Create a PulseCheck in Semonto Supervisor. For each PulseCheck Semonto generates a unique URL that your server or script needs to call.
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.
You can now rest assured that tasks are being performed, scripts are running and backups are being made. If not, you would have heard by now. So relax and enjoy the peace of mind.
PulseChecks are easy to configure in Semonto Supervisor, the web interface for Semonto. Here you can set the desired time out and define how you would like to be alerted.
In order to deliver a high reliability and to reduce latency, we provide multiple servers at different locations to monitor the PulseChecks to offer you the best service
Semonto shows you the IP address of which the last pulse has been sent. This can be useful to retrieve the IP address of a device when it has unexpectedly changed.
Choose whether you want to receive alerts via email, Push Notifications, text messages or Twitter. We also have web hooks available so you can integrate the alerts into your current workflow.
