Here at Monitis, we’re on a mission to not only build the best product but also, at the same time, make it more user-friendly. We listen to your feedback and suggestions and take various steps to improve our services, tools and features to make YOUR life easier. In any given week, you can see a new feature or update in your Monitis dashboard. Here’s some of the stuff we’ve added since our last newsletter, three months ago. Stay-up-to-date and see all that we have to offer by reading about all our changes below:
1. LOAD TESTER
Monitis’ industry leading Load Tester tool is now accessible directly from your dashboard with one simple click! Additionally, it offers new updated reports and a streamlined payment option that eliminates the need for you to re-enter payment information with every transaction. You can make a payment using your credit card or PayPal. See how this can be helpful>
2. NEW MONITORS
Extended MySQL – We’ve extended our MySQL uptime monitor to better support databases on shared hosting. Now, you’ll be able to monitor your hosted database even if you don’t have access to the entire MySQL server. Details here>
Tomcat Monitor – We’re happy to announce the release of our new Tomcat Monitor. Like everything else we develop at Monitis, it’s designed to eliminate complexity and provide easy end-to-end monitoring for our users.

User Voice – We’re right now in the process of rolling out the popular User Voice service, that’s intended to get balanced customers feedback and identify most popular features customers would like us to implement.

6. NEW MONITORING LOCATIONS AND HEALTH STATUS FOR GLOBAL NETWORK
This cool new feature allows you to view the health status of the global network of locations, which is where we perform our monitor services from. You can use the check-in analyzing alerts that we send you to make sure that downtime wasn’t caused by a server outage on our network. Take a look>
We’ve also added 3 new monitoring locations to our global network – that’s India, Hong Kong and Vienna. These locations support your uptime, transaction and full page load monitoring needs.
7. USABILITY IMPROVEMENTS
Invoices List Redesign – We have redesigned the Invoice list and have added it to the “Profile” dialog! The invoices will now be presented in monthly or yearly format, depending on your plan. Take a look>
Outage Report Update -Tracking activity and understanding what happened when is much easier with the Outage reports. In the new report, the time of the outage will now automatically reflect your time zone, as opposed to the previous report version which always referenced GMT.
Calendar Usability Update – If you need to select a number of specific dates for a monitor, you will no longer be required to spend a lot of time making these changes from your module’s option menu. The new calendar allows you to select your first date (“Today” or “Specific Date”), and use the convenient arrows to navigate back and forth directly from your module.
