Status screenshots on dashboard

Aaron Ott December 21, 2022

I would like to build a status page for one of my internal departments that displays 4 screenshots of remote machines. I will also investigate API components to monitor the status of a few services, but more importantly, I'd like to have a visual status representation with a screenshot. 

Is anyone aware of a service that would display current screenshots on a Statuspage dashboard?

Hello Aaron,

Thanks for reaching out to the community. I'm Jesse from the Statuspage support team. If I understand correctly, are you trying to have a dashboard that shows the current status of particular machines in real time? If I do understand correctly, then I am not sure if Statsupage would have that capability without some customization. There would be a few things to point out:

1. Statuspage is more of an incident communication tool to let people know if there are issues with your system.  It is not really a monitoring tool that could monitor in real time or track a highly accurate SLA. In a case like this, I would recommend an incident monitoring tool like Opsgenie.

2. If you were to customize the page, you could use custom HTML, CSS, and JS to get it to show a particular component and its status.  In terms of how to specifically do that would probably require som development from your front end team to manipulate the page into that state.

I guess my biggest question is around screenshots. What exactly would you be wanting to take a screenshot of? The component status of certain components? If you haven't already, I would highly recommend taking a look at Opsgenie as that is able to integrate with a wide variety of tools to help with monitoring and alert management:
