Most monitoring tools send notifications via email, however email is not sufficient when alerts are time sensitive and rapid response is necessary. OpsGenie uses multiple communications channels to ensure recipients are notified in a timely manner.
Short text messages often cannot convey sufficient information to empower users to make effective decisions. OpsGenie alerts are not limited to a few characters, and can contain free form text, tags, additional fields, and even files to provide context for the alert, and enable recipients to determine the right course of action.
OpsGenie is a cloud based alert management system, provided as a service. You can start using OpsGenie within minutes. Create an account, invite your users, and create alerts using OpsGenie Web UI, email, web API, or command line utilities. OpsGenie takes care of the rest; send notifications to users via email, SMS, phone calls, and smartphone apps.
Easily create on-call schedules with daily, weekly and custom rotations. On-call scheduling allows using multiple scheduling rules to use different rotations at different times. Sophisticated scheduling scenarios such as after hours coverage, weekdays and weekends, geographically distributed teams coverage, etc. can be defined quickly. Schedule previewer updates the schedule dynamically while the scheduling rules are defined.
OpsGenie provides detailed tracking for each alert. Alert activity log presents all activity related to the alert; when the alert was created, who was notified, when the notifications were sent, whether the recipients have seen the alert, or taken any action. Tracking is performed seamlessly, without requiring specific user action, whenever possible.
OpsGenie can notify multiple users at once, but what if you want to notify on-call engineer first and only notify other team members if the alert is not acknowledged for some time? Say hello to the escalation policies. You can define escalation policies to notify users in order until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
Do you receive support calls from your users? You can route phone calls to the right person using OpsGenie on-call schedules and policies just like you route alerts from monitoring tools. And if there is no one available, OpsGenie takes a message, generates an alert, and notifies the specified people. The message left by the caller is attached to the alert, hence alert recipients can listen to the message using OpsGenie apps.LEARN MORE
