The main functions and terminology of SiteObservers UX monitoring services are explained below.
- Operational Dashboard
The main page of SiteObservers services where you get a complete overview of the performance and availability of your applications/websites. This interface provides a summarized picture of entire operational status during the past 24 hours. It also provides you with the quick links to analyze the existing issues and take the corrective measures.
This field provides the information about the number of monitors created on SiteObservers platform. The number decreases/increases, if you delete or add a new monitor respectively.
- Total Checks
This is the total number of checks performed by the monitors during past 24 hours. The number of checks depends on the configuration of the monitoring interval of your monitors.
Alert indicates the total number of alerts on all monitors during the past 24 hours. The alert indicates that the system has crossed the service degradation tolerance level, and service has already started to degrade at the time of alert.
The total number of warnings generated by all monitors is recorded here. The warnings are generated when the system performance is about to touch the service tolerance line. It is good time to take immediate action to avert any performance degradation or failure.
This term records the number of failures of the system during the past 24 hours on the dashboard. The failure is the state of the system or web environment when the service stops completely.
- Monitor Status
It shows the current status of a particular monitor. The monitor status can be either stopped or active. You can manually change the status of a particular monitor.
The availability shows the uptime value of the system, application or website under monitoring via any SiteObservers monitors. It is a percentile value ranging from 0 to 100.
The interval shows the monitoring frequency of a particular monitor after which the monitor checks the performance of a system, application or website. It can vary from 1 minute to 1 day.
