Availability monitoring conducts periodical detection tasks to check whether specified local or remote paths or ports respond properly and sends alarm notifications if response timeouts occur or status codes indicate errors based on the conditions specified in your alarm rules. This function can help you to quickly learn if local or remote services are unresponsive or abnormal, improving overall O&M and management efficiency.
