Now Available – API Monitor (Beta)

Our monitors now support synthetic API transactions.

This lets you define a series of steps which are performed, in sequence, to determine uptime.

You can issue GET, POST, PATCH, and DELETE requests with custom headers and data (where applicable) and then verify that the result contains or does not contain certain content.

You can create this new monitor under Monitors > Add New. Tell us what you think!

If you have questions, please let us know.

Now Available – Maintenance Windows

We now have maintenance windows: temporary periods where checks will not occur for monitors.

This is useful if you don’t want to receive alerts or distort metrics during maintenance.

It supports specific days and times and is easy to setup, too.

You can set it up under Account > Extras > Manage (Maintenance Window).

If you have questions, please let us know.

This lets you communicate critical information (based on data from Pingometer) to your users. It’s hassle free to setup, too.

As an example, check out our own status page at http://status.pingometer.com.
