Internal monitoring may tell you that a server is down inside your network or even that the outbound connection is having problems. But internal monitoring may not inform you that your web site is not available to the external user. monitor.us provides monitoring tests from the external (outside of the firewall), or user perspective. Many factors can impact website performance and website availability that will result in lost credibility and sales, including:
- Service interruptions or congestion on an ISP’s network
- Router failure
- Firewall problems
- Denial of service attacks
- Spikes in usage or degradation of server
- Server or equipment failures
- Software glitches.
