What is PagerDuty?

PagerDuty is an alarm aggregation and dispatching service for system administrators and support teams. It collects alerts from your monitoring tools, gives you an overall view of all of your monitoring alarms, and alerts an on duty engineer if there's a problem.

What is Pingdom?

Pingdom is an uptime monitoring service. When problems happen with a site that Pingdom monitors, it immediately alerts the owner so the problem can be taken care of.

How developers use PagerDuty and Pingdom

Great service, gives me piece of mind. One thing I really don't like: they set the default notification downtime to 2 min or greater. I missed a total of 13 minutes of downtime for our blog over a three month period back before we moved it over to the rails app because there was basically one minute here, one minute there. I was pretty angry when I found out they weren't notifying me. But then I realized that it probably makes sense. But they should be more transparent and make it clear that there is a 2 minute window when you first set up alerts.

Pingdom is a tool I use close to deployment of new apps or sites and periodically used to check the health of an app or site over time. The analysis of request times, assets and more is second to none.

DevOps-Buste.. You get the idea. PagerDuty is great for quickly notifying us when things go pearshaped.

For making sure everything is up, and telling us when it's not. We tested a few services and pingdom is still the quickest to recognise downtime.

Nice 1min monitoring time that will show us if something went down. Best visualisation and fastest downtime detection.

Luckily we don't end up actually using this much, but we couldn't live without it.
