SIGNL4 Integration with Hyperping

Hyperping is a cloud-based monitoring system.  This tool is perfect monitoring the status of your servers and applications to make sure they are reachable.  The monitoring dashboard gives a great overview of your setup but where SIGNL4 comes in is at the alerting level.  Server DOWN status will be sent via email to the SIGNL4 team by creating a new teammate within Hyperping. With on-call duty scheduling and a tiered escalation to a manager, SIGNL4 ensures that the email will not be lost in a sea of emails.

In our example we are going to forward Hyperping status information via email to the SIGNL4 team.  This will alert all team members on duty via Push, SMS and Voice notifications.

SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items.  Get the app at https://www.signl4.com
