Downtime Simulator

Use the Downtime Simulator to test your monitor before you roll it out. This process allows you to test the alerting process and confirm the alert coverage for a specific time of day.

The Downtime Simulator runs a synthetic failure by:

  • Applying the configuration parameters of the monitor
  • Scanning each alert to find any associations with the monitor
  • Checking range parameters and schedules for actions within the alert
  • Carrying out any active actions
