Use Edge Services portal to create or edit a check and organize it into a monitoring or app group. You can select one of several built-in check types based on the service or instance type you provision. You can also view a list of checks already created and view details for each check. You can mute and unmute a check to determine how it affects open incidents and delete a check you no longer need.
All check types within Edge Services portal have several core options. By default, a check is run every five minutes. This can be changed to run as frequently as once every minute.
A check can have three health states:
A failed check test triggers a reattempt after 30 seconds to eliminate false positives. The check will be sent into a failed state and raise the appropriate severity incident created by the check group. When a check recovers, it automatically enters a Warning state and will remain there until ten successful check runs have completed.
