What does Corner Bowl Internet Server Monitor include?
Corner Bowl not only checks the availability of server applications but in most cases includes functionality to test the application performance. For example, an HTTP or Web monitor can be created to test the availability of the server and verify the returned URL or document contains the desired content.
Docker Container Monitoring
Corner Bowl integrates with the Docker Engine REST API to monitor Docker Containers, CPU utilization and Memory consumption. When resource consumption exceeds your configured thresholds, actions, such as Email Alerts, include detail about each Docker Container.
System administrators can setup monitoring hierarchy to shut down, start, or throttle up backup system monitoring when a primary server fails. For example, when a ping monitor fails on a primary server the system can shut down the dependent memory and CPU monitors while also throttling up ping, memory and CPU monitors on your backup server.
Monitors such as the Ping Monitor regularly timeout. Internet Server Monitor provides you with the tools to define failure rates. For example, when pinging a server every second, you can configure the ping monitor to trigger only after 3 pings fail within 10 seconds.
Corner Bowl saves all monitor results to the local file system then removes old status using a data retention policy your network administrator defines. Corner Bowl users can view the history in tabular format and graphical format when applicable.
