How to monitor your Website in just 2 simple steps

In this post, I will show you, how to monitor your Website in just 2 simple steps?

Step 1: Create a component.

Click on “Create Component” below
Click on “Create Component” below

Think of components like folders that contain other Fyipe resources and one of the resources it has is called “Monitors”.

They can help you to monitor security measures and manage logs of any of your resources.

They can also help you get SMS Alerts, Call Alerts, or Email Alerts during downtime.

So we click on “Create Component” and provide the name of our component, let’s say, “Home Page” and click on “Add Component”.

Enter “New Component” name
Enter “New Component” name

That’s it…we have successfully created a new component.

Step 2: Add a Website monitor to your component.

A website monitor will basically test your Website for availability, performance, and function.
It will also notify you when it goes down or performs poorly.

So we provide the name of our website, let’s say: “Google” and click on “Website”.

Enter Monitor name and click on “Website”
Enter Monitor name and click on “Website”

Now, we need to provide the URL of our website, that will be “google.com

Enter the URL of the Website
Enter Website URL

You can click on “Advance Options” to provide any configuration settings for your new monitor.

Here you can set Monitor Criteria for Online, Degraded, and Down.

Enter Monitor Criteria here
Enter Monitor Criteria here

These criteria state when your monitor is Up, Degraded, or Down. For example, the monitor is Up when Status Code is greater than 200 but less than 300 and the response time is less than 5000 milliseconds.

If it does not match this criterion, then the monitor will be considered down and you will be alerted.

You can set the same when the monitor should be considered degraded and down.

Let’s click on “Add Monitor”.

Enter Website URL and click on “Add Monitor”
Click on “Add Monitor

Your Website Monitor is now successfully created and added to your component.

This is how it looks like when Fyipe is monitoring your Website.

Let me simulate what happens when your website is down.
I’m creating this incident manually, but Fyipe will automatically create one for you.

Click on "Create new Incident"
Click on “Create new Incident

You will be alerted when an incident is created.

You can acknowledge an incident when someone is actively working to resolve it.

And you can resolve it, when you finish working on it.
