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:
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.
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.
There is also the option to monitor UDP ports if required.
There are so many other features available that I haven’t mentioned or have used comprehensively so you might as well check at the features on the Better Uptime website.
ORGANIC T-SHIRT AND STICKERS
Also, the team at Better Uptime also sent me an organic T-shirt and some stickers. Thanks for that!
