monitor.us added 5 new protocols in today’s: DNS, TCP, UDP, IMAP and SIP in addition to the previously supported protocols HTTP, HTTPS, PING, SMTP, POP3, FTP. All together, we are now supporting 11 protocols. Still in beta release, we are aggressively adding new features.
SIP monitoring is a quite unique feature of monitor.us which will allow our users to check the availability of their Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) servers, which are based on SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an application-layer control (signaling) protocol for creating, modifying, and terminating sessions with one or more participants. It is widely used as signaling protocol for Voice over IP, along with H.323 and others. Voice over Internet Protocol, also called VoIP, IP Telephony, Internet telephony, Broadband telephony, Broadband Phone and Voice over Broadband are the routing of voice conversations over the Internet or through any other IP-based network. VOIP is getting more and more popular by business of all sizes since it is more cost-efficient and convenient.
The latest release has many improvements in the user interface, many bugs were fixed, and we improved responsiveness of the service. Particularly, in response to user requests, we made switching between chart and table view easy with single icon click. Also, reporting is easier and more convenient – another improvement based on user feedback.
