Website uptime statistics help you better understand the time and length of every instance of downtime and how it could impact user experience. Use SolarWinds® Pingdom® website monitoring to help ensure website availability and performance isn’t negatively impacting your customers, website KPIs, and business objectives.
Website uptime monitoring is an important tool to help ensure all users in all corners of the globe get uninterrupted access to your online services. Even a few seconds of downtime can have dire consequences for your online presence. With Pingdom, you get constant website uptime checks and real-time alerts to quickly begin remedial action in case of an outage. Pingdom uptime monitoring typically takes only a few minutes to set up and begins collecting web performance and availability statistics immediately.
Pingdom pings your website every minute to confirm the server is responding. The moment the server stops responding, you’ll receive an alert. Using a network of more than 100 servers located across the world, website availability is verified for all visitors, regardless of their location. Pingdom keeps a record of tests, allowing you to analyze uptime, page speed, and transaction performance. The uptime test result log is available for download as a CSV file, limited to 10,000 lines per download (about seven days of data with the default one-minute interval). The transaction monitoring data has unlimited data retention, while reports on load times as experienced by actual visitors (visitor insights) cover up to 400 days depending on your plan.
Pingdom monitors uptime as well as crucial website interactions, such as the sign-up process. If there’s an issue, you can get an alert through email, SMS, push notification, or a collaboration platform of your choice, including Slack, PagerDuty, and Opsgenie. You can choose whether you want to be alerted instantly when a problem is detected or after a few minutes, giving Pingdom some time to perform additional checks. You’ll also get alerted when the check is confirmed to be up again.
While monitoring website uptime statistics is crucial, Pingdom offers much more to help you boost web performance and improve the end user experience. With real user monitoring (RUM), you can drill into live user sessions to see exactly what site visitors are experiencing in real time. By monitoring the end-user experience, you can verify your pages’ load times based on visitor location, browser, and device used. This allows you to identify target areas for creating uptime tests from relevant geographic locations and further optimization of these pages.
