Luna Node Dynamic includes server uptime monitoring. From the panel, you can create various types of checks including HTTP OK, SSL expiration, and ICMP ping. Then, create contacts through e-mail, web hook, SMS, or phone call (note that SMS/voice notifications are charged at the Twilio rate, rounded up to the nearest cent). And finally associate your checks with a subset of contacts.

Select Monitoring in the sidebar to manage your server monitoring.


The following checks are supported. The instructions should be self-explanatory, open a ticket if you encounter issues.

  • HTTP page contains substring (http_contains): GET the target URL, and ensure that the page contents includes a given string.
  • HTTP status OK (http_ok): GET the target URL and confirm status code is 200 OK.
  • HTTP status code check (http_status): GET the target URL and confirm status code matches the given expected value.
  • SSL expiration check (ssl_expire): connect via SSL and ensure certificate isn't going to expire soon.
  • Ping (ping): do three ICMP pings to target and confirm that we get at least one ping back.
  • TCP connection test (tcp_connect): connect to given host and port with timeout.


You can add contacts with e-mail, web hook, SMS, or phone call.

For web hook contacts, enter the target URL, and the system will perform a POST request on the URL with the check details in the POST fields.


Alerts is simply an association between a check and a contact. These are created by selecting a check after you create some from the Checks list, and then selecting a contact from dropdown and hitting Associate button.

The web hook alert will perform a POST request on the configured URL with these parameters (which will be form encoded):

  • check_id: the ID of the check whose status changed
  • name: check name
  • type: check type
  • data: check parameters
  • status: either "online" or "offline", depending on whether the check came up or went down
  • message: a description of the reason for the status change
