If any live server goes offline, an administrator has to be notified. Many companies use some third party services to do that. But what if you SQL Server service crashed for some reason? Will you be notified right away or will find out after many lost sales and transactions? What if SQLBackupAndFTP itself crashed (while extremely rare, but everything happens) – how would you know your backups are not being done?
Introducing Service down alerts option in SQLBackupAndFTP that covers all of these cases. If you enable this option from the main screen, an email will be sent to you in one the following cases:
- If your server is down
- or if you SQL Server is down
- or if SQLBackupAndFTP is down
If you need to email to multiple recipients – as usually, just separate it by a comma. This option is included at no additional costs to Full-Service subscription.
