Alertra monitors much more than just your uptime:
– Contacts. We send alerts by email, phone call, SMS and chat (XMPP). We also support custom contact methods like iOS/Android push notifications using Pushover.net and external logging/alerting services like PagerDuty. If it has an API, we can create a custom contact for it. Escalation. We give you complete control over how your contacts are notified during an outage. For example, send email and SMS alerts first, and if the outage persists, start waking people up with phone calls.
Public Uptime Statistics
– You’ve worked hard to build a stable, reliable system. Now it’s time to show off those uptime statistics.
– With event-driven webhooks, we go a lot further than just sending you an alert, we take action. When your site goes down, we can call an external API to switch your DNS to a backup site, log the event to an external logging service, and just about anything else you can think of.
