  • Ask HN: How to do dead simple heartbeat monitoring?
    I've been very happy with https://updown.io. Reliable, very reasonable per-request pricing, easy to set up. The creator did a Show HN about a decade ago: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8712386. - Source: Hacker News / 17 days ago
  • I'm building an uptime monitoring service for API workflows! Looking for some fedback.
    Each 'step' in a chain of API requests would consume 1 credit. 100% inspired by updown.io's pricing model, which I personally love: https://updown.io/#pricing. Source: 11 months ago
  • How to Monitor a Livestream Broadcast?
    The part I am missing is a way to know when the stream goes down. I've tried updown.io monitoring, using Powershell to query the broadcast URL, but since the stream doesn't actually END, those all continue to see it as up even when its just spinning circles and not showing any actual video.

  • service status plugin
    For a few bucks a month, we use updown.io and we put our page into an iframe for our server status like this - https://palmcoastdesigns.com/server-status. So not a plugin per say, but, it does what you are after. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Two months in: How the SaaS that was built in 7 days is going
    I always think it's entertaining that the 200th uptime website that charges their users doesn't compare themselves to the actual competitor, it's not pingdom, it's updown, hundred of websites checked for the price of a buck a month: https://updown.io/. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Build a CDN in about 5 hours
    That's server failure, and it's easy to spot. Internet burps are harder to detect. You'll need to run external health checks, from multiple locations. It's easy to get basic, multi-perspective monitoring – we use Datadog and updown.io, and we're building out our own half-built home grown service. You're not asking for much more than what cURL will tell you. Again: the thing you're super wary about in a CDN is a... - Source: dev.to / almost 3 years ago
  • Looking for a selfhosted Status Page
    If you just need uptime and not status pages in which you can post comments I've been using updown.io for years and like it a lot. I setup Prometheous and Grafana a year or so back for self hosted website uptime and it was a dud for me. If I lose my home internet then I end up getting 57 outage messages at once. Then of course 57 more when the connection comes back. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Service Breakdown in my Kubernetes Cluster: Steps, Solution, Learning
    For the most part, I have monitored my applications with updown.io. When I ran out of the free plan credits, I switched to Upptime - basically out of curiosity to learn how Github tasks can be used to monitor your application. I was impressed how simple a public dashboard is created, and how you collect uptime metrics absolutely automatic without much configuration. - Source: dev.to / about 3 years ago
