Getting started with monitoring

Setting up monitoring is really easy and can be done in a just a few steps.

1. Create a monitor

Setting up a monitor takes a few seconds. Head to your hyperping dashboard and click on the New monitor card.

To quickly get started, simply:

  1. Give it a name
  2. Enter its URL

For example, if you want to monitor your marketing website, you could name it Website and add its url. Then click the save button.

And you're good to go! Once you hit save, your monitor will be pinged every minute from a different region and report its uptime and response times to detailed graph.

Note: for more advanced settings, read our Create a monitor documentation.

2. Setup alerts

For each monitor created, you will receive alerts everytime one service goes down, to let you know something bad happens, or up, when an outage terminates. You will receive those alerts to the email you signed up with.

You can decide to send alerts to:

  • Emails (yours): The one you signed up with.
  • SMS: You can setup your phone alerts at your account level.
  • Slack channel: You can decide to send down and up alerts to one of you Slack channels at the Project level.
  • Teammate emails: You can invite teammates at Project levels from the Teammates page. They will receive alerts once they signed up using your invitation link. Teammates can also add their own phone numbers.
  • Webhook: You can setup your own integrations using our Webhok integration. See doc here. It handles 2 events: check.down and check.up
