How to setup uptime monitors?
Downtime happens even to the best of us. But it’s important to know it before customers are affected and that's why uptime and performance monitoring is critical to every business.
WP Umbrella offers you the ability to monitor your WordPress websites from all over the world. If we notify a downtime, we will instantly alert you with an email or a slack notification.
Let's check how to make the most of this feature!
How to setup monitors?
A monitor is automatically created when you add a project. By default, your website is monitored from Belgium.
To add more regions and increase the monitoring frequency click on ' Settings '. Then click on ' Monitor '
From here, you can:
- Enable/disable the monitor (useful for maintenance operations);
- Define a monitoring (ping) interval (we recommend you to monitor your website every 2-5 minutes);
- Decide to monitor a page which is not your homepage;
- Select the regions from where we should monitor your website
How to notify more people?
You can notify several users in case of downtime and/or use our Slack integration. To do so, click on ' Settings ' and then on ' Notifications '
From here, you can emails to notify and/or setup Slack alerts.
