New app turns Android mobile devices into carrier-specific monitoring locations
Real-time IT management company ManageEngine has today announced the launch the Site24x7 Mobile Network Poller App.
Available immediately, the app turns Android mobile devices into carrier-specific monitoring locations.
"Mobile apps are now ubiquitous, so the mobile websites and REST APIs used by native iPhone and Android apps absolutely must be monitored to ensure excellent end-user experience," said Gibu K. Mathew, director of product management at Site24x7. "The new mobile network monitoring capability in Site24x7 will help IT teams monitor status via popular 3G and 4G wireless networks. Additionally, you can monitor response times of APIs that are consumed by these mobile properties."
The Site 24x7 mobile network poller app keeps track of mobile websites, monitoring key metrics like availability, response time and downtime of websites. It has the ability to monitor via 3G, 4G or WiFi network or via any other connectivity mode present on the mobile device.
Users can also set up multiple devices on different service providers to monitor mobile websites.
Once downloaded and set up, the Android app will run in the background, on the mobile device, at all times. Once the app gets registered with a Site24x7 account, the device will be shown as a "primary location" or "secondary location" in the Site24x7 console.
The Site24x7 Mobile Network Poller App comes as a standard feature of the Site24x7 Business Pack and above which start at $39 per month.
