Find Out What Went Wrong
Sometimes an issue may be restricted to a single element, such as a failure in the payment processing engine, or a problem with a specific SQL query. Pingdom monitors for problems including error messages, HTTP statuses, content changes, and much more. It does all this, in addition to a basic website availability test, instant alerts about availability, and a root cause analysis report. From the control panel, you have access to a suite of additional tools, allowing you to run a traceroute, dig in to see server response codes, and view log output from the web server.
Page Performance Testing With Pingdom
Avoid Repeat Incidents
As soon as an outage is detected, Pingdom will send alerts to the most appropriate team members. Immediate notifications can be sent via email and SMS, mobile app push notifications, or piped to your developers’ groupware channel. With support for Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat, and more, you can make sure the outage notification reaches the correct person. By maintaining a complete report of every test, Pingdom allows you to analyze previous outages and the events leading up to them in minute detail. Use these reports to fix issues—and to put new processes and procedures in place to avoid similar incidents in the future.
