Overview

SIGNL4 adds reliable alert notifications via app-push, text and voice calls with automated escalations when needed.  SIGNL4 also introduces an advanced duty scheduling system, ensuring that on-call responsibilities are efficiently allocated and allows you to see who is on duty at any given time.

Checkmk sends detailed problem information to SIGNL4, informing the on-call team or technician. The Checkmk connector in SIGNL4 allows status updates to be sent directly from the SIGNL4 mobile app, like acknowledging an alert. This ensures both SIGNL4 and Checkmk dashboard users have real-time information on problem resolution status. If Checkmk recognizes a solution (UP), it automatically updates SIGNL4 and closes the alarm.
