CloudMonitor provides multiple metrics, such as metrics about the Web or API messaging sending method, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) message sending method, and abnormal accounts, to help you monitor the status of DirectMail. CloudMonitor also allows you to set alert rules for these metrics so that you can receive alerts when any exception occurs.

After you purchase DirectMail, CloudMonitor automatically collects data based on these metrics.
