- I'd strongly suggest looking at Freshping by Freshworks.Frankly, I have not tried other uptime monitoring tools. My first encounter was with Freshping and I do not see any reason to try another tool as Freshping is keeping me really happy - 1. Super-easy to setup 2. Free to use (with whatever features I needed) 3. Clean Interface
This is going to give a lot of products a run for their money being free and having everything a small to medium sized business needs including monitoring, alerts, multiple check types and even status pages. I'm guessing this would tie in very nicely with the other Freshworks' products as well.
I monitor a popular community website for downtime using Freshping. The mobile version of the community is buggy and Freshping helps me understand if it is the site's problem or a bug that is denying me access through the phone. Setup literally took me under a minute!
It's been a pleasure to use, and gets better every month. So much nicer than others I've used in the past—it was a simple decision to switch all my monitoring to Hyperping.
I've been using hyperping at Landen to keep tabs on performance and more importantly to show my customers how reliable Landen is. After trying almost every uptime monitoring and status page service, HyperPing is simply the easiest to use, most beautiful and affordable of them all.
- It's simple in use and effective. I just configured it (a couple of minutes) and now I'm notified via email each time any of our monitors are down or up again. So, I usually don't need to go to Uptime Robot itself or even open their emails - I just check my email, go through the topics and time of their messages - and that's how I know our monitor has been down for some time, a few minutes, as a rule. A great tool for free!Indeed, Uptime Robot is really simple to use. Everytime my website down, it sends me an email notifying me to take action afterwards, so does it when it's up. Really useful for many purposes.
- In Hitsteps we are using Pingmeter services to ensure our uptime for our customers. In addition to typical uptime monitoring voice call alerts, Pingmeter provide a status page for our clients to monitor and pingmeter trigger pre-defined actions in case a downtime or a recovery is occurred. As a result, If one of our servers go down, Pingmeter will trigger an automated action for us to forward visitors to another server (without visitors notice anything!) while it is calling one of our server manager phone according to scheduled time we set for each server managers.
- For monitoring up to 25 sites WebGazer has a $15/mo plan. Have been happy with the service so far, and they've continued to add additional functionality over time to help the community monitor their services, including a cron job monitor feature which was added recently.
Whenever one of my sites has gone offline, PingPing was there to notify me right away.
The user interface is simple to use and looks good on the eye. Also, I can give a monitor-specific live status page to my co-workers and customers, - so that they also know at every time if the site is down.
I would not only recommend PingPing to any company and person who fears that their sites could go down, but I've already recommended it to a bunch of people.
I was impressed by how polished and well thought out this simple tool is.
The decision to focus on doing one thing very well rather than diversify and try to be a all-in-one web monitoring toolbox was a good one, in my opinion.
Excited to see where this product goes over the next few months.
I have only tried it out for a personal side project, but will be recommending this at work.
- We use Pingdom at Matter along with PagerDuty.. It gets the job done. I haven't found anything better but I wouldn't say I love Pingdom.
