There is an email alert that can notify if an SMSC connection drops off-line, or if the outbound message queue grows too large.
On the "Service" configuration page, click on "Manage Alerts". Configure email settings, and enable error alerts...this will generate an email alert if an SMSC connection goes down.

If you want to build your own monitoring, there is an XML interface from which you can query status: s
This link has a PHP example that looks at individual connections, which might be helpful:

Hi Des,

Yes, I've made an email alert from "Manage Alerts" before, but I noticed that some of sms did not received.
From SMSOUT log, it show the status is "OK" but sms does not reached to the phone

Currently, we're use PHP scripts and use without route function to send sms, which is randomly selected by modem.

However, is it NowSMS have DN function? With this function, we can know the sms has been sent out from NowSMS side, right?

Hi Des,

I've added ReceiptRequested=Yes under SMSGW.INI to show total sms already send to recipient.
But, how could I know which number already DELIVRED to recipient? Is it have any query to retrieve that phone numbers?

It's a good idea, but there is no existing feature for this.

You can do a automated sms sending with cron.
Just make a http post sms sending.

Automate a curl post with crontab that sends a message to x-number:

CURL examples:

URL to curl:
http://IP:8800/?PhoneNumber=<number>&user=<user>&password=<password>&text=<test text>
