How It Works

Web server and application server monitoring is based on the following methods:

  • Passive monitoring - Web traffic responses are monitored to ensure the server is functioning.
  • Active monitoring - A dedicated HTTP request is periodically sent to an offline server. Traffic is resumed when the expected response is received.
How It Works

Automatic Failover

Continuous server health and performance checks detect outages and minimize downtime. With no TTL-related delays, traffic is instantly rerouted to an available server.

Automatic Failover

Automatic Alerts

Automatic email notifications alert you to any possible failover situation. You can fine-tune the precise scenarios that will trigger an alert, such as:

  • One or more servers go down
  • A specific number of proxies begin rerouting traffic
  • A data center crashes
