How To

Services

Host Monitoring

You can monitor the percentage of use of the hardware components of your device and receive an alert when they exceed a certain threshold. For example, if you are a Web Developer, you can check the progress of your server's CPU usage over time and be warned when a certain usage threshold is exceeded. For more information see our doc and our tutorials. #hostMonitoring

Dynamic DNS

You can associate to a device with a dynamic IP, such as a smart device in your home automation, a static DNS Name, thanks to the Dynamic DNS function integrated with Storm. For more information see our doc and our tutorials. #dynDNS

Plugins

You can create customized services, called plugins, to be executed in a scheduled way on your device and optionally be warned if the return value, for some execution, is not what you expect. For example if you are a Web Developer, you could periodically check the length of the Redis Task Queues and be warned when it exceeds a certain number of tasks. You can create your plugin yourself or download them from our market, written by our developers and the community users of Storm. For more information see our doc and our tutorials. #plugins

Endpoint Health

You can periodically check whether a data request on your domain gives a correct return code or not, and be warned in case of a change of situation. ** For example, in a web App development team, you can create a daily Endpoint Health active only outside working hours and that sends an alert to all team members if an important web app request responds with Server Error (500 error). For more information see our doc and our tutorials. #domains #requests #endpointHealths

Load Tests

You can make a request flow to the nodes of the Storm network, also selecting from which countries to take the nodes, to see the response times of your domain. **For example you have just created your site and you want to understand how many requests it can bear. You can simulate a "stress test" and see the response times of your host for a given number of requests, made consecutively by a given number of hosts. Or you can see the different response times of the clients of a certain region of the globe so you can analyze the quality of the site connection.
