What is MoSKito UI?

MoSKito monitors state and performance of your web application.

Things you'll need to monitor your app:

  1. MoSKito Monitoring Framework, embedded into the Java Server (like Tomcat or Jetty) of your web application.
  2. iOS device with running MoSKito UI and Internet access.
