Health Check
You may configure the health check feature and corresponding alerting for the App Service to get a direct notification in case your SCEPman instance is no longer responsive.
After you have configured the health check and Alerting correctly it takes some time until the alert rule works properly. It is because the metric Health check status needs some time to get the information and the dynamic alert rule threshold needs some time to analyze the metric.
