Monitis is a powerful one-stop monitoring shop for systems and web administrators. It is fully hosted, so setup and usage are far easier than with traditional software solutions. In addition to website and server monitoring, Monitis is a monitoring platform that allows users to build their own monitoring applications, to monitor anything. This is done using the Monitis API. The API lets users extend, automate, and integrate the monitoring and notification platform as they wish, and also create and manage accounts and account privileges. This makes Monitis a very practical solution for MSPs (managed service providers) and IT support companies.
Monitis REST API
Monitis provides a powerful API (Application Programming Interface) for extending basic functionality and integrating with other tools. Developers and sysadmins can use command shell scripts or programming languages to enhance the system. They can also manage their accounts and privileges, add and remove server monitoring, retrieve monitoring results, and even create custom monitoring process. In this article we provide some external server monitoring use case scenarios using the popular command line tool cURL. The API is built on the HTTP REST protocol, so cURL lets users do all the API calls and build even create sophisticated scripts.
