Introduction

If you are responsible for the monitoring and management of web servers, then it is vital that you have some instrumentation in place that will inform you of any problems.

This is where WebUp comes to the rescue. It will not only tell you the response times of multiple http end points such as web urls, but will send you an email notification if the site becomes unresponsive.

WebUp is a Windows 10 app that can be found in the Windows app store giving you a secure and safe source to acquire it. Although it is a Windows 10 app, it is a Universal app which means it will run on desktop, tablet, mobile and Xbox. Windows 10 apps can be installed on up to 10 devices giving you the option to monitor your end points on multiple devices in different locations.
