Unleashing the Power of Edgio Applications Real-Time Alerts

About The Author


We’re pleased to announce the addition of Real-Time Alerts to Edgio Applications v7. This post covers Real-Time Alerts (RTA) capabilities, use cases, and benefits. Real-time Alerts provides notifications of traffic changes, allowing operators to respond to incidents before they impact the business. What if your web servers were technically “up” but responding with errors? What if you had broken links or images in an email campaign? Or what if you had a sudden spike or drop in traffic? Would you know? How long would it take to find out? With RTA, you can configure alerts to notify your team about these situations instantly. For example, receive notifications for spikes in traffic, broken links, and server outages through the following alerts:

  • Egress bandwidth > 10 Gbps
  • 404 status code > 1 per second
  • 5xx status class > 1 per second
Real-time notifications empower businesses with instant awareness, enabling them to respond promptly to emerging situations.
