SIGNL4 Integration with Uptrends

Don’t just a get a text message or email when your website is down. Uptrends checks your website availability at one-minute intervals from 225 different locations worldwide. Uptrends can send out email and SMS alerts but where SIGNL4 comes in is the ease of managing an on-call team with instant collaboration and ownership of those alerts.   With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended. SIGNL4 also offers ad-hoc collaboration between team members for each and every alert, so Subject Matter Experts can be looped in to help resolve issues.

In our example we are using Uptrends to monitor the up-time of critical servers. We are forwarding website down alerts via webhook to our SIGNL4 team.

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
