We can use a Port Uptime Check to test a server port via TCP or UDP protocol. There are two ways to create a new Port Uptime check:
- Navigate to Uptime > + New > Port
- From the side navigation, click + New > Uptime > Port
On the Basic tab supply the address of the host and port to monitor:
By default Rigor will run new Real Browser checks from all available United States locations. Use this setting to disable locations or select additional multiple locations from Rigor’s global monitoring network. For a full list of locations and their IP addresses, see this article.
Notify of location-specific failures
Enable this option to receive failure notifications regardless of location-specific issues. Not sure whether to enable this feature? See this article.
String to Send
Optionally provide a string of text to send. The string should be in a format accepted by your port, typically in plain text format.
Response Time Monitor
By default Rigor will count a run as a failure if the response time of the run is greater than 60,000 ms. You may set a custom response time monitor lower than 60,000 ms to make alerting more aggressive. For more ideas about using response time monitors see this article.
Optionally add tags to checks for an organization or to compare checks by tag on a dashboard. Read more about using tags in the Rigor app here.
Use escalations to send alerts to new users or groups if an alert has been unacknowledged for a specified amount of time.
We can add multiple escalation emails or repeat escalation emails until a check is ‘back online.’ Read more about setting escalations here.
Specify times when the check should not run. For more information about setting blackout periods, see this article.
Select an existing configuration to use for this check. Read more about configuration templates in this article.
