  1. Headline annual rolling uptime

    The last month rolling uptime percentage (large headline) is really helpful as it shows the most recent performance. Beside it, I would like to see the Annual Rolling Uptime. If the account has not been active for a year, it should show the period since the account was opened. This is important because after six months, the month-by-month view will have been deleted.
    That said, this is the best online service that I've discovered this year.

    Thanks for your feedback, unfortunately we can’t really add all the number people want, the status page already have lots of them. We’ll probably add the ability to go back in history in the future (on the calendar view for example) but we most probably won’t add an annual uptime in the headline. You can get this number from the API if you want it though, the history is kept forever at the data level.

  2. Add a "Does not contain" option

    The content on the site may vary a lot, but it should never include words like "exception" or "error", which is what we want to check for.

    Sorry but this won’t be added, we consider it to be a bad practice as this would miss most actual errors returned by your servers and drastically reduce monitoring quality (which would then be blamed on us). If you don’t care about the content present, just don’t use this feature and rely on standard HTTP status check.

  3. Login check

    Check with login credentials. Now we can only see the front page.

  4. Add ability to shorten check confirmations

    It would be great if you could have a check that checks every 10 minutes, but when it starts failing you can have do the confirmation checks every minute.

    At the moment (I could be wrong here) if I have it set to check every 10 minutes it would take 30 minutes of downtime for me to get a notification.

    Actually the confirmation checks are twice as fast, which means that with a 10 minute period, you’ll be alerted 10 to 20min after the downtime started (and only for downtimes longer than 10 min)

    If you check every 10m it means a downtime up to 10m is acceptable. Running confirmation checks faster would mean being sensitive to downtimes smaller than 10min.

    If you want faster alerts, you need to select a faster check interval, there’s no point in being notified in 2 min if you check every 10 minutes anyway because If you care about a 2 min downtime at 12:00, you should also care about a 2 min downtime at 12:05 too ;)

    In the end, we chose to keep a precise balance between sensitivity and frequency so you can’t be notified for a downtime randomly, this is important because with a 10 minutes interval you can miss a…

    This is an interesting website load time indicator but it requires browser simulation and is much more complicated and expensive to compute, that’s why there are dedicated and expensive tools to do just that. This won’t happen in updown.io.

  6. Add more time intervals

    It would be cool if you also could time intervals like once per day or once per hour since some domains are only important for the SSL monitoring for me.

  8. Customize Alerts

    Customize alerts: you should create custom alerts for (all/specific check(s)) with given (apdex/timeframe):
    example.com 0.6 apdex in 15 min → send sms
    example.org, example.de 0.3 apdex in 1 hour → send email
    etc.

  9. Check status code AND content

    check status code AND content (via regexp) with the same "ping". Currently you should configure 2 "ping", one for the status code and one for the content

    That’s a pretty limited use-case, an API returning the good content but wrong status is pretty unlikely to happen, not worth modifying the product. If you really want to check both, feel free to use two checks with one very slow (10m) so it doesn’t cost much.

  12. Lots of checks, less often

    I'm looking for website checks (404 and other error results vs normal) for a lot of uris, like tens of thousands, but then, not that often. Like every uri once a month.

    updown.io isn’t suited for this kind of monitoring, the pricing wouldn’t justify the storage costs and all charts and numbers would break. Though we can probably build a small custom tool for this and host it for you if you want. Send some details to support@updown.io if you’re interested.

  13. Alert after N periods

    In order to avoid false alarms, it would be great to have a per-check variable to define how many failed pings to wait before alerting.

  14. Reset statistics

    It would be good to be able to reset statistics so if you have problems setting up the alert (i.e. it fails a few times until you get it right) then you will never see 100% uptime, but you should.

  16. Specific webhook

    It would be cool to add webhooks on event levels.
    I just want to call a resource if my server is not reachable, or I just wantro call it if my server started up again.

    It is currently not possible to check websites which place a cookie on initial visit. It would be nice to have an option to enable cookies.

    What do you mean by that ? if you want the check to be able to fill out arbitrary form and submit them to authenticate, then store the session cookie and use it to check another page, this is never going to happen in updown.io. If what you mean is being able to send a custom Cookie header with the check request, this is going to be added soon (custom headers).

  20. Send test alert email

    Like the test sms message. Send a test alert to the configured email addresses.

    Useful for when our email server config changed and we wanna make sure that we still get the alert mails.
