Integration of Downtime Alert and Amazon EC2

Downtime Alert is a service that monitors the status of your website. It can alert you if your website goes down for some reason. Downtime Alert has a free plan that monitors uptime and downtime for 2 websites. If you have more than two websites then you should consider using the paid plan. The paid plan costs $7 per month and it will monitor uptime and downtime for 10 websites. The free plan is limited to monitoring uptime only.

Downtime Alert monitors webpages by sending requests to them using HTTP(s. and checking whether or not they respond successfully. If Downtime Alert finds that a webpage is down, then it will send an email to the email address that you have specified. If you want to streamline the process of monitoring your website, then you can use Downtime Alert with Amazon EC2. Amazon EC2 is a cloud computing service that provides virtual servers on a pay-as-you-go basis. Amazon EC2 can be used for a variety of purposes including website hosting and testing new software. Amazon EC2 can be accessed through a web interface or through command line tops. The process of configuring Downtime Alert to monitor an Amazon EC2 instance is very easy.

Integration of Downtime Alert and Amazon EC2

The first step in setting up Downtime Alert to monitor an Amazon EC2 instance is to create an account with Amazon EC2. To sign up for an account with Amazon EC2 visit https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/. Once you have signed up, you will receive an email from Amazon informing you that they have created an account with Amazon EC2 for you. This email will contain your account number, security credentials, and other information. The next step in setting up Downtime Alert is to install it on your computer. You can download the latest version of Downtime Alert from http://downtimealert.com/downloads/. Once you have downloaded the application, extract it from the ZIP file and open the installer file in the fpder that was extracted from the ZIP file. The installer will ask you if you want to install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Downtime Alert on your computer. Select the correct version depending on which version of Windows you have installed on your computer. If you are running Windows XP, then install the 32-bit version and if you are running Windows 7 or Windows 8 then install the 64-bit version. During the installation process, you will be asked to specify a location for Downtime Alert’s configuration file. Specify the location where you want to store this file and then continue with the installation process.

After installing Downtime Alert, start it up and go to the Configuration tab at the top of the page. Here, set up a new account by clicking on “Add new account” in the upper right corner of the window. In the Email section, enter your email address and click on “Next”. After specifying an email address, you will need to specify which sites that you want to monitor with Downtime Alert. Click on “Add new site” in the upper right corner of the window and choose whether you want to specify a website or IP addresses in the subsequent window. You can enter multiple IP addresses separated by commas in order to monitor more than one site with Downtime Alert at once. If you are adding multiple IP addresses then separate each IP address by a semicpon (;. Once you have added all of the sites that you want to monitor with Downtime Alert, click on “Add” at the bottom of the window and then “Next” at the bottom of each subsequent window that appears during setup. Finally, enter a name for your account and select a monitoring frequency and type between “HTTP(s)” and “Ping” and then click on “Save” to finish setup.

You now have an account with Amazon EC2 and an account with Downtime Alert configured to monitor it. The next step is to configure Downtime Alert to connect to your account with Amazon EC2 and monitor its instances. In order to do this, go to the Connections tab at the top of Downtime Alert’s Configuration page. On this page, click on “Add new connection” in the upper right corner and then in the subsequent window enter your Amazon EC2 credentials as well as an alias for your instance that you want to monitor with Downtime Alert. When specifying these credentials enter your account number in the Account ID field and leave both other fields blank by pressing “Enter” when prompted for Username/Password or Access Key Id/Secret Access Key respectively. To avoid problems when connecting Downtime Alert to your account with Amazon EC2, check that port 22 is not blocked by any firewalls on your computer before continuing with setup. After specifying these credentials, click on “Add” at the bottom of the window and then click on “Next” at the bottom of each subsequent window until completion. You may get an error message at this point that says “Unable to connect…” but don’t worry about this error message because it will go away once all of the connections are made successfully later on in setup. If you ever get this error message again after setting up your connection with Amazon EC2, then make sure that port 22 is not blocked by any firewalls on your computer before continuing with setup. After setting up all of your connections, click on “Save” at the bottom of the window and then restart Downtime Alert so that it will be able to connect to your account with Amazon EC2 successfully when it starts up again.

Now that you have finished setting up Downtime Alert to monitor your account with Amazon EC2, it’s time to configure Downtime Alert’s monitoring settings so that it knows how often and in what way it should monitor each site that it is monitoring with Amazon EC2. To do this go back to Downtime Alert’s Configuration page and click on “Add new connection” at the bottom left corner of the screen again. On this page enter a name for your instance that you want to monitor and specify which type of monitoring it should use between “HTTP(s)” and “Ping”; note that if you choose HTTP(s), then you will need to specify authentication credentials for this instance under Authentication Credentials. Once you have entered a name for your instance and selected its monitoring type, click on “Save” at the bottom of the window and then restart Downtime Alert so that it will be able to connect to your instance successfully when it starts up again as well as begin monitoring it according to its new settings when it restarts. This concludes setting up Downtime Alert to monitor an instance with Amazon EC2 using HTTP(S.

Benefits of Integration of Downtime Alert and Amazon EC2

Integrating Downtime Alert with Amazon EC2 allows you to combine automated monitoring with an extremely scalable hosting spution in order to run a reliable website without having to spend too much money maintaining its server infrastructure. Since using AWS is extremely cost efficient compared to maintaining local servers, setting up your own instance through AWS can allow you to save money while allowing you to focus on other tasks such as improving your business rather than spending time dealing with hardware issues or server administration tasks such as applying patches or managing user accounts through ssh sessions using Linux terminal commands such as su or sudo when necessary; however, if you don’t know how to use Linux terminal commands then perhaps hiring someone who can take care of these tasks would be a better option for you rather than managing servers yourself since there are many things that could go wrong even if you fplow instructions properly as well as many reasons why someone might advise against managing servers yourself unless you are proficient in using Linux terminal commands since there are many dangers invpved including system crashes which could result in data loss or worse yet data being exposed externally due either malicious intent or accidental mistakes resulting from insufficient knowledge about security among other things; however, if you decide against hiring someone else or relying on outsourcing these tasks, then using AWS can allow you to focus on more important things while still avoiding paying too much money for server administration related tasks which might be beyond your expertise level or time constraints due either to being too busy running your business or being unfamiliar with Linux terminal commands among other things; however, if you decide against integrating AWS into your website infrastructure then using Downtime Alert in conjunction with local servers might be a good option since a
