Metrics

We are super proud to announce our latest major feature to increase your overall transparency - metrics.

Go beyond uptime status and include metrics in your status pages to give more insights into the health of your services. Provide high-level information about how well your services are performing and embed metrics directly into your status pages. 

Submit your own data using our API or use 3rd party data sources, such as Datadog and Prometheus.

Status Page Embed Widget

Communicate incidents to your users right where they are using your services, on your website or web app. Use our new status page widget to show any ongoing incidents or scheduled maintenance. 

This is how it works:

  1. Generate an embed code in the settings of your status page.
  2. Choose the position of the floating widget on your site and customize colors
  3. Past the embed code in your website

The widget will only be visible whenever there is an ongoing incident or scheduled maintenance and will be hidden if all services are operating normally.

Status Page Automation via Alert Actions

We have moved Service Automation Rules to Alert Actions. You can now automate updating your status page through alert actions. This gives you more flexibility, as you can update multiple services from a single alert and use powerful features such as conditional execution or manual trigger mode.

For more information, go to our documentation.

New integration: PandoraFMS

You now can connect your PandoraFMS monitoring suite to get alerts via ilert.

Check out our documentation for detailed instructions on how to connect your PandoraFMS with ilert:

CSV/PDF Export for alert report

Need to show the latest reports to your management or discuss the details of your alert history within your team? Now you can easily export your latest alert reports as CSV and PDF.

New Logo

We are very proud that, in addition to the numerous new features, we are also taking a step forward visually. With our new logo we want to express what ilert is - A young ambitious and modern start-up. You will notice some visual changes in our platform, apps and on the website. We hope you like it as much as we do.
