Remote Monitors

ECmanaged provides remote monitors. These monitors are hosted externally from your servers and checks your services remotely. As these checks are remote, the service host and port must be accessible.

You can access these monitors from Remote monitors. This page will list all configured remote monitors, as shown below:

You can add a monitor using the New remote monitor button.

As shown in the picture above, you need to define a name for the monitor, select a Monitor type. Currently supported external monitors are:

  • Check HTTP
  • Check HTTPS (Certificate expiration)
  • Check TCP
  • Check DNS
  • Check FTP
  • Check SMTP
  • Check POP
  • Check IMAP
  • Check SSH

You choose the Monitor interval (in minutes), the Maximum attempts before it triggers an incident and the Business Impact of the monitor. Then you click Next.

In this step, you configure the monitor. It depends on the selected monitor type. The picture above shows the monitor configuration for CHECK HTTP. You also configure the incidents based on metrics and corresponding threshold conditions and choose incident state to be either CRITICAL or WARNING. Then you click Next.

The last step lets you associate a notification profile with the monitor for Warning and Critical incidents.
