Your website is monitored by three remote monitoring servers. Each monitoring server visits each monitoring interval 24x7 at the same time as the other monitoring servers. From the results obtained ipPatrol determines whether your site is working and can alert you via sms, pager and email as required.
Performance statistics (dns lookup time, connect time, first byte time, transfer time, transfer rate and elapsed time) are recorded and used in our online graphs and email reports to provide a performance overview of your website.
Detailed reports are sent on a regular basis as required containing details of outages, website availability, a graph depicting overall performance and a detailed performance analysis.
The basic http/https monitor is suitable where you just want to check a web page is being served and the correct http error code is being returned from the server. Your server must allow the HEAD request method for this monitor to work.
The standard http/https monitor should be used when you want to check for content on the page being monitored, check and follow redirections, monitor forms or password protected pages.
