The most basic unit of a speed test, the humble ping, is invaluable for assessing website availability and performance. Be sure to use an automated ping monitor that can alert you about all website outages and availability issues as soon as they appear.
Setting up a routine ping monitor program is relatively straightforward for a single server. But in the global marketplace that uses a complex network of services and hosts to deliver content as quickly as possible, you need an advanced ping monitoring solution—SolarWinds® Pingdom®. Using a network of 100-plus geographically dispersed locations, Pingdom tests website availability and response times as often as once every minute. By pinging across the world, Pingdom accurately reflects your website visitors’ experiences and page load times. You can also detect whether performance issues are caused at the main website, or at one of your satellite content delivery network (CDN) data centers.
When ping responses fail, or fall outside acceptable limits, you’ll receive an instant notification. You can also receive alerts for a range of other website issues including error messages, HTTP status, content changes, and more. And when the website comes back online, you’ll get notified about that, too.
Every monitoring ping is recorded by Pingdom – along with the outcomes of any other tests you choose to conduct. The built-in reporting engine can help you identify short-term and long-term performance issues and their root causes.
Raw performance figures may not be useful unless you analyze them in the context of user experience. Pingdom provides real-world testing to reliably simulate the experience of any user anywhere in the world, which can provide insight into site optimizations to improve performance. In addition, Pingdom can also help you understand the end-user experience of actual users in real time.
Ping responses show how quickly your web server responds to an initial connection, but the browsing experience is much more involved. Real User Monitoring tracks link clicks and the page load processes triggered by your visitors. If you’re a webmaster, monitoring the entire load process (as experienced by real users) is critical to delivering a seamless experience to your visitors.
