Monitor HTTP(S) URL Endpoints Using Ciao

vumdao profile image Vu Dao Updated on ・3 min read

- ciao checks HTTP(S) URL endpoints for a HTTP status code (or errors on the lower TCP stack) and sends a notification on status change via E-Mail or Webhooks.

- It uses Cron syntax to schedule the checks and comes along with a Web UI and a RESTful JSON API.
