  3. Break down the time taken by redirects since they're often a key part of the user experience

    Currently updown.io breaks out the time of normal requests into:

    * name lookup;
    * connection;
    * tls handshake; and
    * response time

    but shows redirects as a single block of time. It would be useful to see redirects broken out the same way.

    Users often type naked domains, like example.com, into browsers. That might lead to this sequence of redirects:

    http://example.com/ -> https://example.com
    https://example.com/ -> https://www.example.com

    (HSTS preload requires the first redirect; you can't go straight from http://example.com/ to https://www.example.com.)

    Depending on how you're handling both http and naked domains the time for the redirects can be much greater…

  4. South America checkpoint

    Hello, I suggest that a South American checkpoint is a priority. I have (among others) websites in Spanish and Portuguese, and although Spain and Portugal are in Europe, the majority of users in these languages turn out to be from South America. If you need a VPS in Brazil, I can recommend Virtuaserver (I had a good experience with them), or there are many others. Best wishes and keep going.

  5. Google Sheets Integration

    Google Sheets integration.
    We use the API now with an external Python script polling in data every x minutes to keep our overviews up to date.

  6. explicit DNS checks

    The current monitoring seems to use resolvers with "hot" caches - hot means they are populated already by the periodic checks.
    For many of ay checks this leads to a DNS resolution time of 0.

    What would be good is a check which does the resolution from the start (root-servers) and implements the whole resolution process itself.

    These kind of checks are resource intensive so they should be limited to every 5 minutes or so.

    Additionally the whole dns resolution paths could be investigated like dnstrace by D.J. Bernstein does (dnstrace/dnstracesort are part of the tinydns package).

    This doesn't fit…

  7. Custom Logo

    I think a custom logo has been suggested before in a comment (https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/33892252-custom-css-for-public-status-pagess), just wanted to raise it a suggestion now

  8. More Bulk Options

    It would be useful to have bulk editing options for the "check interval" and "monitoring locations".

  9. Show QUALYS SSL Labs Grade

    Show somewhere on the status page, the SSL Labs grade for the monitored host. It can be get trough the API, like https://api.ssllabs.com/api/v3/analyze?host=updown.io (it could be tested once a day for each host)

  10. Add clarification on APDEX hourly chart

    I don't know why, but I always get confused if the far right is the current hour or the far left is the current hour. A mouse-over, tool tip or guide that just says "current hour" or "24 hours ago" would help clarify at a glance.

    Indeed, it’s actually planned to add a tooltip on the Apdex with more details about the numbers which caused this score (duration, origin of requests, etc..) so the precise time will also be an information to put in this tooltip.

  11. Add the ability to disable following redirects

    Currently updown.io will follow 302 redirects when checking if a service is up. In the `curl` commands that are emailed when downtime is detected, this is achieved via the `-L` flag. It would be good if this could be disabled, so that the actual endpoint given is tested and not the endpoint at the end of the 302(s).

    An example of when this might be useful: I have a few endpoints that simply 302 to another endpoint, which I don't maintain / own / have any control over. I'm less interested in whether those endpoints are up, and more interested…

  12. STARTTLS check for SMTP servers

    Ath the moment SMTP ports may be checked for responsiveness but not for valid connections. Interesting would be:

    - check if there is really a SMTP server
    - check for STARTTLS
    - check for valid certificate / expiring certificate
    - check for MTA-STS/DANE

  13. Provide virus and malware alerts

    Integrate with a third-party (for example virusdie) to provide their virus/malware scan of your website for free.

    We started integrating with the Google Safe Browsing API to provide detection of virus, malware, phishing, etc.. Currently the information is displayed in the dashboard but no alerts are sent. This will probably be added later.

  14. Bulk switch apdex level

    Bulk option: change the apdex time level, e.g., quickly switch between .5 seconds and 1 second to see difference.

  15. Turn the webapp into a PWA (Progressive Web Application)

    I believe the effort to turn you application into an webapp is pretty low (just include the manifest.json into the project root), and that would enable the users to install the website and use as an app.
    It would also open some doors for future development:
    - Send push notifications from web
    - Offline access (yeah, this is kinda weird for you product)
    - Improved caching
    - Auto-updates straight from web (this is in comparison to native apps)

  16. Negative monitoring

    I would like to have checks which fail when something is there which shouldn't be there. For example a http endpoint which should only be available through https.

  17. Customise (on/off) Default Notification Channels

    I would like to set which Slack Alert Channels (but this idea applies to all notification methods) should be default on or default off.

    I have a couple of channels I need just for specific high priority notifications. I don't want them accidentally switched on for every updown.io entry that is added

  18. Order by status and disabled checks

    I like ordering checks by status having the "down" first.
    It would be nice, in this view, to have the disabled checks at the bottom of the list.

  20. Multiple email addresses for the weekly report

    I'd like to be able to enter multiple email addresses for the weekly report. For example, certain department managers would like to receive a weekly report of the checks, but not be disturbed every time a check goes up or down.
