Create Web Trackers in Netmon
Have any of your website or web applications gone down, been hacked, or defaced? When and how did you find out?
In this post, we will show you how Netmon monitors your websites (or web applications) in our complete Network Monitoring Solution.
There are a few types of monitoring that are going to take effect when you create web trackers / url in Netmon.
- ICMP / PING will provide you with: latency and status (up / down)
- Pattern Match: will let you select a string of text on your website / URL that Netmon will check against to make sure that your site has not been defaced. Alternatively, your server where your site is residing may be operational and responsive but the site itself may be down or content may not be resolving.
Most importantly, when you create a Web / URL tracker you can create an email alert and be notified should any of the above trackers fail.
You can also run historical reports on your sites / URLs; for example: what was the latency for my website over the course of the week? What was the uptime of the website for the month?
