Monitis Team continues to increase the list of supported check types and now introducing MySQL and Advanced DNS checks. Let’s start with MySQL check. After inputting all necessary info, i.e. username, password, port number, IP of the server MySQL resides on, our monitoring agent will start to check periodically the availability of MySQL DB and you will get a notification in case your DB is unavailable, which is very crucial for every application. Next check type is Advanced DNS, which provides an opportunity to find out if particular Name Server resolves your hostname to a proper IP address or vice-versa. Beside that you can also find out if the Name Server you specified is Authoritative for the hostname you provided. If some of you are unfamiliar with DNS, you will find a detailed description in our Articles section by the end of this week.
