What are the SMS credits I see in my account dashboard used for?

Server Check can send alerts to system administrators by SMS text so that they receive an instant notification whenever a service that is being monitored goes down. The system can also be configured to send recovery notices when services come back online and start responding to monitor checks after a period of downtime.

In order for Server Check to send these SMS alerts you will need to have SMS credits in your account, and you will need to insert the SMS API Key and SMS API Password into the SMS settings panel of Server Check. Each SMS message will use one SMS credit from your SMS Credit Balance.

Your SMS API details can be used across as many installations of Server Check as you like.
