What is a monitor? 🧑‍🏫

A monitor is a job that runs periodically and checks the status of a service. It can be a website, an API, or anything else that can be checked automatically.

Configure your monitor 🛠

Your endpoint check requires:

  • a name to identify your monitor
  • the URL to checked

We will store the response time and the status code of your endpoint.

Monitor your endpoint

HTTP Request 📤

Customize the request sent to your endpoint.

Choose between one of the request HTTP Method: GET (default), POST or HEAD.

Add custom key-value HTTP Headers to your request.

OpenStatus automatically appends the "OpenStatus-Ping": "true" header to your request. This header is used to identify the request as a ping request and can be exluded from your analytics.

If you select the POST method, you can add a custom HTTP Body to your request.

Advanced Configuration ⏱️

Define the frequency of your checks. You can choose between: 1m, 5m, 10m (default), 30min or 1h.

By default, all regions are enabled. You can disable some regions if you want to. Leaving it empty will check your endpoint from a random region.

The description is optional. If defined, an Info tooltip will be added to your monitor name.

You can always pause your monitor with the active switch button.

Notifications 🔔

Get informed whenever a check fails. You can add multiple notification channels.

We send a webhook to Slack or Discord channels. Or you can also receive an email.

Create an API key and use it in your HTTP Headers to create your monitor programmatically API.
