Sematext is a hybrid monitoring service capable of detecting and troubleshoot production & performance issues with logs, metrics, and real user monitoring. Performance monitors are easy to configure, and notifications channels are configured with just a few clicks. SIGNL4 ensures that all on duty members receive, acknowledge and resolve critical alerts, all from their smartphones. With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended. SIGNL4 also offers ad-hoc collaboration between team members for each alert, so Subject Matter Experts can be looped in to help resolve issues.
How it Works
SIGNL4 team webhook establishes connection with Sematext to enable mobile notification and alerting capabilities for operational and network teams.
Tickets and Incidents are sent to SIGNL4
Event categorization, routing and automated delivery
Persistent Notifications by push, text and voice call with Tracking, Escalation and Confirmation to Staff on Duty
HOW TO INTEGRATE
In our example we are using Sematext to monitor the heartbeat of critical servers. We are setting up a webhook to send alerts to the SIGNL4 team when the server is unreachable.
