Dyn Performance Alerts
Performance Alerts generate measurements to target endpoints and, by allowing the user to set thresholds for latency and packet loss, generate alerts when a performance deterioration is observed. Monitoring is achieved by using PINGs to the target IP addresses, and trace routes are performed to the target IP address every 15 minutes. Alerts are delivered via a RESTful API or via email notifications that include a graphical visualization of the alert. The user can configure measurements to endpoint IP addresses from any of Dyn's cloud-based vantage points installed in the major cloud provider regions. The monitoring services looks for performance degradation and alerts on three types of events: end-to-end connectivity, latency deterioration and packet loss.
