Monitoring SharePoint and Web Pages

Metalogix Diagnostic Manager helps you monitor the availability and load times of individual SharePoint pages, public Web pages, and—if you are registered with  Cloud Services— Cloud pages.  You can use alerts to help you find when a page needs your attention. You can set default alert thresholds for all pages or individual pages.


NOTE: For SharePoint on-premises pages, you can also monitor the components that make up the pages.

To monitor a page, you first add a SharePoint on-premises farm or Server Group to  Metalogix Diagnostic Manager.  You can then add a page to monitor. After you have added a page, you can edit the monitored page settings as needed.  

If you want to monitor Web pages from a machine that does not have internet access or if you want a secure connection, you can configure Web proxy settings.
