Product Updates - Server Monitoring News - Updates

Keeping track of many servers and their availability is not easy. You have set up your accessibility checks with us and of course you want to see immediately what the status of your infrastructure looks like.

We offer our check overview for this, in which you can immediately see all servers and their status. For this reason, we have also made changes there that make it easier for you to see the status of all systems.

From now on you can have the last status displayed directly, but you can also see when we last checked your server. We have also changed the display so that you have the status of the server (i.e. availability) in focus.

In addition to these changes, we have also turned a few other adjusting screws, where it is often hardly noticeable, but which are important to get a more precise, quick overview.

We would like to ask you again to send us suggestions for improvement. Use our support request tool in the backend area, the ticket system, by email or just give us a call.

UI - "User Interface"

UI stands for “User Interface” or in German “UI”. In terms of software, UI refers to the interface that allows a user to interact with a software application. A well-designed user interface is crucial to a positive user experience and helps users use the software effectively.

Here are some important aspects associated with UI in conjunction with software:

  1. Visual Design: The visual design of the user interface includes layout, color schemes, fonts and graphical elements. An attractive visual design can improve usability and make the software more intuitive.

  2. Interaction Design: Interaction design refers to the design of user interactions with the software. This includes arranging buttons, menus, and other controls to allow for efficient and logical use.

  3. Navigation: Navigation is crucial for usability. A clear and easy-to-understand navigation structure makes it easier for users to navigate the various features of the software.

  4. Responsive Design: Since software can run on different device types and screen sizes, responsive design is important. It ensures that the interface looks and works well on different screen sizes and resolutions.

  5. Accessibility: An accessible user interface is important for accessibility. This includes designing software to ensure it is accessible to people with different abilities and disabilities.

  6. Consistency: Consistency in the user interface ensures that similar features or actions are presented in the same way. This makes it easier for users to recognize patterns and use the software efficiently.

  7. Feedback Mechanisms: The interface should contain feedback mechanisms to provide users with feedback on their actions. This can be done through animations, pop-up messages or other visual cues.

  8. Prototyping and Usability Testing: Before releasing software, it often makes sense to create prototypes and conduct usability tests. This allows developers to improve the design based on actual user behavior.

An effective user interface helps users use the software without unnecessary difficulties. The combination of an attractive visual design, intuitive interactions and a clear structure makes the software more appealing to users and makes it easier to complete their tasks.
