ATR Server Status


Simple, efficient, ad- and bloatfree plugin for testing whether or not a given server address is up for just you, or everyone else on a given port and protocol.
Servers & services are checked in real-time whenever a user requests to view the page where the shortcode is inserted.

Intuitive interface, makes is really easy to maintain servers & services to check.

You have the ability to filter/hook the message displayed to the user through functions.php in your theme folder.

add_filter( "atr_server_success_message", function($message, $server) {
    return $server->humanname." appears to be working alright.";
}, 10, 2);

add_filter( "atr_server_error_message", function($message, $server) {
    return $server->humanname." is down.";
}, 10, 2);

You can also use the filter “atr_perm_administer_servers” to alter the permission being used to check access rights.

add_filter( "atr_perm_administer_servers", function( $permission ) {
    $permission = "editor";
    return $permission;
} );

Does this plugin require anything special?

This plugin depends heavily on the curl_* and fsockopen(); PHP functions, however such functions are enabled by default on the majority of webhosts.
“allow_url_fopen” can in most scenarios interfere with the accuracy of the plugin, if disabled.

It does not work

Looping status, in short, it does not work.
Can not contact the creator, are contact form not working either..

Needless to say that all other plugins of the same type works very well at home.

Just was i was looking for

I’ve searched wide and far for a simple yet effective plugin that could allow my visitors to check if my services were Online and avaiable. ATR Server Status does just that. It has a simple to user menu, advanced check settings like timeout, and protocol which i don’t often come across.

It’s lightweight and accurate and i can highly recommend it to anyone that needs a plugin for server monitoring for their users.
