Unless you’re serving up a static brochure website, your website or web service depends on a database to retrieve content, manage users, or process orders. Knowing your database response times can help you avoid catastrophe. Using Uptrends' database server monitors, you can always know when your database is in trouble.
Uptrends will use its 227 checkpoints to monitor your database server externally.
How does it work?
With Uptrends' database monitoring, you can monitor Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL. The Uptrends checkpoints will attempt to establish a connection to the IP address and database you specify on the Advanced tab, and if you provide login credentials, the checkpoint will attempt a successful login. Besides the response times you specify on the Error conditions tab, Uptrends will trigger an alert for failed or lost connections.
