If you have used Monika before, you can easily import your existing Monika configuration to NEO Sense. Additionally, you can also import a HAR file, a sitemap file, or even Insomnia and Postman collection file.
Plus, you can configure NEO Sense to send notifications of incidents through your preferred communication tools, such as Discord, Microsoft Teams, Telegram, DingTalk, and many more.
You can start using NEO Sense now by navigating to https://neosense.bgnlab.id and creating an account. You will receive an email to confirm your account.
After you confirm your email, log in to the website, and you will be redirected to Create Organization page. Fill out the organization details and click Create.
You will be redirected to the Create Project page. Set your first project name, and select your time zone. By default, it will automatically use your current time zone. Click Continue to go to the dashboard.
In the dashboard, click Add New Probe button. Then, fill out the probe details such as probe protocol (HTTP/TCP), name, URL, and description. Then, save the probe by clicking the Add New Probe button.
You will be redirected to the probe configuration page. Here you can set the request method, body, and timeout. Also, you can add more requests to be chained if you want to.
You need to assign a location for the request to be run by NEO Sense. Click the Locations tab and select locations where you want to run the probe.
Once we assign locations to our probe, click the Performance Metrics. Wait for 3–5 minutes until the data show up.
You have set up your first probe! Now you will be notified if there are any incidents or recoveries through your email. You can also configure your notifications channels or alerts by clicking the Configurations button.
