The availability of websites and applications is more critical than ever before. Leverage uptime monitoring in SolarWinds® Pingdom® to proactively check if your website is down, and understand what caused the downtime with the help of root cause analysis.
You can quickly and easily get started with uptime monitoring for your website and web applications in as little as three minutes and get notified about outages immediately. Pingdom monitors the availability of your website or application through a network of more than 100 probe servers around the world. You can diagnose issues and resolve them to ensure your web application remains up and running and the customer experience remains intact.
The comprehensive uptime reporting in Pingdom keeps you updated at all times, and the tool’s intuitive interface is accessible to technical and nontechnical professionals on your team. If you’re a hosting provider or managing multiple client websites, Pingdom helps you achieve SLAs and serves as third-party proof.
Pingdom alerts you as soon as your site is down and eliminates false positives by double-checking availability with another server before sending the alert. You can get alerts via email, SMS, or mobile push notifications on the Pingdom Android and iOS apps. Additionally, you can integrate Pingdom alerts with your preferred third-party apps (Slack, HipChat, etc.). Pingdom gives you the flexibility to choose how early and often you want to be alerted based on severity.
Pingdom root cause analysis helps you fix website outages as soon as possible. The analysis helps you explore what could have caused the outage and for how long it occurred. For example, Pingdom informs you which probe servers weren’t able to reach your website and reports Resolve IP test results and DNS errors. Pingdom also shows you the content the probe servers were able to fetch, and where possible, Pingdom reports traceroute information between the probe servers and your website host.
Enable transparency with the help of Pingdom Public Status Pages, which are designed to display website uptime data. You can choose to highlight only current data or include historical data to showcase website availability over time. Similarly, you can share uptime reports with colleagues or clients without needing to log in to view the reports.
Pingdom provides comprehensive monitoring, with synthetic and real user monitoring in addition to uptime monitoring. You can monitor important user journeys like signups and conversion flows with transaction monitoring. With real user monitoring, you can know which browsers, devices, and platforms are being used along with metrics like top performing webpages, the performance of web elements on each page, and the locations from which real users are visiting. Having synthetic and real user monitoring in a single pane of glass can help give you enhanced visibility and faster troubleshooting.
