In a previous post, I talked about a tool I use called Better Uptime, you can read about it here: Website Monitoring and Status Pages

It’s a great tool to monitor your networking devices, servers or any device that is connected to the Internet and at the same time generate a status page. When I was working as a Network Engineer and Telecoms Engineer a monitoring tool such as Better Uptime would have been so useful.

Now, Better Uptime recently added new features to the system and it includes the following:

MOBILE NOTIFICATIONS

Better Uptime now have a mobile app and I’ve started using this method of receiving notifications instead of emails. I get an instant notification on my mobile phone when a device goes down or is restored

You can search for Better Uptime in Google Play or the Apple Store.

DOMAIN SSL EXPIRATION

You can receive notifications when the SSL certificate expires. This is great if you’re using LetsEncrypt which can only issue a free SSL certificate for 90 days.

DOMAIN NAME EXPIRATION

You no longer need to set calendar reminders with this feature. You can receive alerts and notifications x days before the domain expires.

PORT MONITORING

You can now monitor a port on a device. So for example, if you had MySQL running on your server, you can monitor for TCP port 3306. If you receive Better Uptime notifications, then it’s most likely the device or the MySQL service has gone down.
