Announcing DNS Check / OpsGenie Integration

We’re proud to announce that DNS Check has integrated with OpsGenie to provide fast, reliable DNS record and name server monitoring with notifications. This allows you to combine the strengths of DNS Checks’s DNS monitoring service with OpsGenie’s notification service. It also allows you to receive notifications from both DNS Check, and other monitoring systems through a common OpsGenie account.

OpsGenie enables you to transform alerts into notifications that are sent to users via iPhone, Android, Blackberry push notifications, email, SMS and phone calls.

DNS Check enables you to easily monitor, share and troubleshoot DNS records. You can import DNS your zone file and have DNS Check monitor the records in it, or specify individual records that you would like monitored.

You can designate that a DNS record is “exclusive,” meaning it should be the only DNS record of its name / record type combination. For example, the MX record for your company’s domain name should be the only MX record for that domain.

You have the option of making each set of DNS records publicly visible, or private, which can save precious seconds if a DNS record or name server is broken, but the person who maintains it doesn’t normally have access to your monitoring system. Here’s an example set of public DNS record checks.

Alerts are automatically created in OpsGenie when a DNS record check fails, and resolved when the DNS record check starts passing again.

Integrating your DNS Check account with OpsGenie is simple, and only takes a couple minutes. Read the DNS Check / OpsGenie integration Guide to get started.
