Deep Discovery for Internet Services

Deep Discovery for Internet Services lets you intelligently discover all the internet resources behind your hosted domains. During deep discovery, Site24x7 auto-discovers and suggests all probable internet service monitors for that specific domain/sub-domains with the help of an intuitive wizard. You can achieve deep visibility into the complete end-user experience for your domain. Being an API driven discovery process, all probable monitor types for a specific domain are listed dynamically using a GET API request. You can further achieve better visibility over your domain resources' by ensuring frequent auto discovery of any new resources being deployed and further monitoring them successfully.

Whenever you create any of the following internet service monitors for your domain in Site24x7, viz., Website, Web Page Analyzer, SSL certificate, DNS Server, REST API Monitor, SOAP Monitor, Ping Monitor, and Port Monitor–Site24x7 auto-discovers and adds all the related internet service resources of that domain for monitoring. All resources of your domain that are discovered and added to your account will be automatically grouped together to form a Monitor Group. Additionally, whenever you set up auto discovery of AWS resources, the discovery wizard simultaneously detects and adds all the publicly available domains hosted on Amazon Route 53 and domain for your internet facing elastic load balancer that are eligible for internet services monitoring. Site24x7 also allows you to discover all your Intranet Resources.

Following are the list of internet service resources that are detected during deep discovery of a domain/sub-domain:

  • Website Monitor
  • Web Page Analyzer
  • SSL Certificate Monitor
  • SMTP Service Monitor
  • DNS Monitor
  • Domain Expiry Monitor
