Super Monitoring is an agent less monitoring site that checks server and application availability. Super Monitoring will send out emails and SMS alerts but where SIGNL4 comes in is the ease of managing an on-call team with instant collaboration and ownership of those alerts. Persistent notifications and tier escalation within SIGNL4 ensure that critical alarms are not missed.
How it Works
The SIGNL4 team email address intercepts notifications and alerts on call team members 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 Super Monitoring to monitor the up time of critical servers and applications. We are forwarding SMTP notifications to the SIGNL4 team email address to receive the alerts.
SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items. Get the app at https://www.signl4.com
A SIGNL4 (https://www.signl4.com) account
A Super Monitoring (https://www.supermonitoring.com) account
Next, lets create a monitor. For this example, we will use an Azure VM that is turned off.
Click on Your Checks navigation item. Then Click New Check. Populate the URL and frequency of checks as well as alerting.
Under the recipients section, choose the SIGNL4 Team you created earlier and choose Send Email Alerts.
The dashboard will show when the website is unreachable. It then forwards an email to the SIGNL4 team in which the mobile app segregates data into an easily readable format.
SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
