On November 17, 2021, Netmonk officially released a new feature of Netmonk Prime, namely Website/API Monitoring. This latest release is packaged in a grand launching event held live via Zoom and YouTube. The theme of the event was “Take a Deep Dive into Website and API Monitoring with Netmonk Prime. According to the theme, we invite participants who are present to get to know more deeply about the Website/API Monitoring developed by Netmonk. Not only that, Netmonk also changed its product name from Netmonk Basic to Netmonk Prime. Here are some things about Netmonk Prime’s newest feature, Website/API Monitoring that you must know.
If you follow Netmonk’s journey, which we always share through social media and blogs, last August Netmonk also launched Netmonk Basic version 3 and one of the UVPs is website & API status. However, at that time, this feature was still under development, and thanks to the extraordinary hard work of the Netmonk team, this feature is finally here and can be used for those of you who have already purchased and have access to the Netmonk dashboard.
Why Website/API Monitoring from Netmonk Prime
As you know, Netmonk Prime is a network monitoring application that automatically acquires data from network devices and visualizes it in the form of an easy-to-understand analytical dashboard. In the Netmonk Prime dashboard, you can use it to monitor networks and websites as well as APIs that you have. One dashboard, all purposes.
In addition to a practical dashboard, because it facilitates monitoring activities in your company, other advantages are:
- 1. Reporting Automation
- 2. 24/7 Monitoring
- 3. Real-Time Notification
- 4. Availability
- 5. Response Time & Up/Down Status
How does it work?
Web/API Monitoring on Netmonk Prime works by checking the connection with the website or API, checking the status code and certain content that comes out in response, and getting the response time from the monitored website or API. If the status code returns, response headers and response bodies that have been configured previously do not match, then the status of the website or API is considered down because it is different from the expected conditions.
In checking the status of the website or API which is monitored regularly, Netmonk provides a choice of various time intervals so that it can be adjusted to the needs of the company. Do you want the monitoring to be done in real-time, or do you want it to be done at more tenuous intervals so as not to interfere with traffic from the website or API? When the status of the monitored website or API is detected as down, the system will send an alert via email or Telegram which is intended so that the IT operations team can be more proactive without having to be on the monitor screen to monitor the availability, functionality, and performance of the website or API 24×7.
