Monitoring Cloud Services and Websites

  • Last updated on

The Cloud Services dashboard provides a summary of the health of cloud services and basic websites that you are monitoring. Along with monitoring basic websites, you can monitor cloud services that involve JavaScript redirection or require persistent sessions. For example, you can monitor cloud services like Microsoft Office 365 or Google Docs.

Barracuda Managed Workplace monitors the health of the cloud service and provides both the response time to access the service and the transaction duration, which shows how long it takes to complete the login and browsing to the actual page under scrutiny. A stable response time with a climbing transaction duration indicates that there may be bottleneck occurring on the web server.

The Search Result column provides more information about the cloud service monitoring:

  • Not Executed A search string has not been defined in the monitor.
  • Unhealthy The search string defined in the monitor was not found. Click for more information.
  • Healthy The search string defined in the monitor was found.

For example, the Google site should have the words "maps" and "images" as part of its search links. If these words are not found, then the website has changed, which could be intentional or unintentional.
