Today we’re excited to announce another new monitoring feature at Office365Mon. Beginning today, we are now offering you the capability to monitor virtually any web site or REST API using the same proven, enterprise grade monitoring capabilities of Office365Mon. The same service we use for Office 365 monitoring can now be used to monitor your sites that you deploy to Azure web sites, or your SharePoint hosted apps for on-prem or Office 365 sites, or virtually any other site! You get the power of a monitoring infrastructure that sends out 10 to 20 million health probes a month to keep you in the know of your own web sites and REST APIs now.
All of this will come with the same kind of integration that you’re used to seeing at Office365Mon. Setup will be extremely quick and easy, all done in your browser as well as via our Office365Mon Management API. You’ll get the same sort of alert notifications as you do with the other resources we monitor for you – text messages, emails, and webhook notifications. You’ll also see all of the data we capture about the health and performance of these sites in the same exact reports you use today, whether that’s one of our Standard or Advanced reports, you download your report data from our site, or you use Power BI with the Office365Mon Content Pack. Here’s an example of a performance report that’s monitoring both Office 365 sites as well as other sites we have hosted in Microsoft Azure:
As you can see from the chart above, we’re monitoring:
- A web site secured with Azure Active Directory and hosted in an Azure web site: https://www.office365mon.com/signup/status
- A REST API secured with Azure Active Directory and hosted in an Azure web site: https://www.office365mon.com/api/reportdata/servicehealthstats
- An anonymous web site hosted in an Azure web site: https://samlman.azurewebsites.net/
Your sites and REST APIs can be hosted anywhere of course, as long as it has a public endpoint we can connect to. It can be an anonymous site, or it can be secured with Azure Active Directory. We can also monitor REST APIs as long as they don’t require any parameters.
This feature is available in Preview today and ready for you to begin trying out. Get started by creating your Office365Mon subscription and then adding some sites to monitor here. Pricing and licensing has not been set yet, but the good news is that like all new features, all existing customers will get 90 days to try it out for free. Especially while this is in Preview, it’s a great opportunity to take a look and give us any feedback you have so we can fine-tune it to meet your needs. Like many of the things you see at Office365Mon, this is another feature that was created based on feedback from our customers.
We hope you enjoy this new feature and will take the time to try it out.
