DNS monitoring

Why use Monitive to monitor your DNS Server?

To put it into perspective we have made an illustration for you. What you have to keep in mind is that with Monitive, you will be the first to know if something happens to your DNS Server. As soon as our accurate checking system detects some anomalies in the functionality of your DNS Server you will be instantly alerted. You can choose to be alerted by SMS, E-mail, Twitter or even Web-Hooks.

Let's go over the illustration and see two possible outcomes of a DNS interrogation:

Easy to read graphs and timetables

Once your service is set our system will start collection information about the replies it receives from your server. These replies are then plotted on a nice graph, which is very easy to read. Also a timetable will be made available for you. This will help you easily see what happened, on hourly basis for every day of the last 30 days or a specific date range chosen by you

We perform redundancy checks to avoid false positives

We developed this fails-safe-system from the beginning, because we ran into the problem of false positives right from the start. Because we use a geographically spread system, if one of our servers fail for some reason, another server will take the load and perform the required operations in order to deliver a precise and valid result. All our systems have a backup. That includes the nodes, the masters and the alert system.

Customizable alerts to you, and checks to your website

Maybe your website makes you a lot of money and you want it checked every 1 minute. Or, if it is just a simple blog that you want to know it's working but you don’t need it checked so often you could use 30 minutes check intervals.

The same goes with the alerts. We can alert you as soon something happens to your website. But again, you could choose to be alerted if your site is down more then a few minutes. It’s up to you to decide how you want it. We can make it happen which every way you want it! If you want to know more about the ability to customize your alerts and checking interval.
