Alerts

What are Alerts?

Alerts are notifications that are sent through emails, SMS or Webhooks. Check the integrations section for more information. Alerts are only generated for certain events.

Website Downtime Alerts

You can receive alerts by first setting up a monitor on your server. For a website or web application create an HTTP monitor. You can select the contacts you want to send website downtime alerts to while adding the monitor. Use the steps described below to enable it for existing monitors.

Server Down Alert

A port monitor can be used to track a publicly open port for downtime. Pinger Man will try to create a TCP connection to the server to ensure it is accessible from outside your network. Server down alert will be sent if the port is not accessible from 3 or more locations.
