Plug-in monitors provide an easy way to:

  • Expand Uptime Infrastructure Monitor's standard capabilities: add new service monitors to report on servers, services or other devices.
  • Implement special customized solutions: plug-in monitors can provide capabilities beyond those offered by script-based custom monitors and can be fully integrated into the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor UI with defined options that will be used when creating an instance.
  • Share resources with the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor community: all plug-in monitors released by Uptime Infrastructure Monitor or developed by Uptime Infrastructure Monitor clients are available on the Grid.

Guidance for constructing your own plug-in monitor is available in the Creating Plugin Service Monitors in Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Knowledge Base article.

Popular plugin monitors tested and bundled by Uptime Infrastructure Monitor are available in the Extension Manager or for earlier version of Uptime Infrastructure Monitor on the Grid.
