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.

What is StatusCake?

Monitoring a website is one thing – finding the best way to alert you to downtime another. At StatusCake we give you as many options as possible to decide when & how often you’re contacted. Whether it’s by email, SMS, push notifications for iOS & Android or integration with third party apps including Zapier and PagerDuty – you decide how you want to be alerted and when!

What is StillAlive?

Using our stories feature, you can test many different features of your live, production website. It could be you need to find out if logins are working. Whatever it is, StillAlive can (or will) be able to test it.

        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.

        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.
