How often do your servers check my services


The netmon service can be configured to check your services as often as once per minute per test node. These tests are normally carried out by multiple independent servers, so this results in multiple tests per minute. Other standard intervals are 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 60 minutes. Bear in mind that between 5 and 10 of our monitoring servers will most likely be testing at these intervals. We also have a 'Best effort' test interval avaialble. This tests constantly from each node, currently at 10 second intervals. This is for special circumstances only. We don't recommend and most clients don't need to run tests every few seconds. Cost of tests is affected by monitoring interval, whcih increases signifcantly under 3 minutes due to the additional resources required to carry out testing at those rates.
