What it does:
PushMon is a new kind of SaaS monitoring system. Instead of checking public facing servers on a regular basis, PushMon will wait for pings from the objects being monitored. These objects are usually batch jobs, scheduled/cron scripts, backups, or test scripts, but really are anything that has access to the internet and can call a URL on a regular basis. If PushMon does not receive the URL “ping” by the specified schedule (like every hour, or every day or even by 5:00 PM every Fri), it will send an alert (email, IM, SMS, Twitter and/or phone call). We can monitor your database backups, your cron scripts, your background tests, your internet connectivity, your batch jobs, and a lot more. You expect your cron job to finish before 5 AM? We’ll notify you by 5 AM if something is wrong.
How it beats the competition:
Existing hosted monitoring services only check public facing servers. PushMon can check anything that has access to the internet.
