Why Enterprise Alert
SimpleOps is a cloud based site monitoring solution that is very lightweight and easy to get started. Performance monitors are easy to configure, and notifications are automatically sent to the email address who signed up for the account. Additional channels such as push, slack and messenger are also available. Enterprise Alert ensures that all on duty members receive, acknowledge and resolve critical alerts, all from their smartphones. With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended.
How it works
Enterprise Alert establishes a connection with SimpleOps via REST API to enable mobile notification and alerting capabilities for operational and network teams.
In our example we are using SimpleOps to monitor the heartbeat of critical servers. We are setting up a site monitor and will send alerts to Enterprise Alert when the server is unreachable.
Sending SimpleOps events to Enterprise Alert
With this policy in place, The IT Operations team will receive notifications via their profile settings and escalating within the team as well.
