  1. Sort checks by apdex

    Would love an option in the dashboard to sort checks by apdex, to make it easier to see which of our sites are not doing so well.

  2. Better expired SSL certificate notifications

    Notifications about expired certificates can be improved (made more noticable) in 2 ways:
    1. Display expired certificates as downtime (or use some other highlighting) in weekly reports (and other periodic reports).
    2. Send repeated notifications for expired certificates (as it is done for downtime).

  4. Provide an explanation of what "Redirections" is.

    Trying out the service and first thing I noticed is "Redirections" is about 50% of the time used. It would be great if you could provide a document or link as to how you are calculating this and what we could do to reduce it.

  6. Send webhook-event when website is removed

    It sometimes occurs that a website which is no longer hosted by us goes down and has not (yet) been removed from updown.io. When we see a notification about such a website, it is usually removed from updown.io so it is no longer checked.

    Once it goes down, a webhook is sent and a monitoring-system alerts us of this error. If the website is removed from updown.io, there is no event to notifiy our system of this change, so the error persists.

    It would be great if the deletion of a website sends a webhook so your custom system could…

  7. Mark Website as Down when Domain Expires

    When a domain has expired and is pointed back to something like a GoDaddy parking page, the monitor shows the site as up. See attached screenshot.

    For all intents and purposes, this should really show the website as down. It's easy to overlook for too long when you manage 80 - 100+ sites.

  9. Status page with responsive design

    More specifically, we display the status page on a widescreen TV, and we have to zoom out to fit the height of the status page, leaving a lot of unused space on the sides.

  10. Grafana plugin

    This has been suggested by a client so I created the suggestion to gather interest:

    It would be great to see an updown plugin in Grafana, From what I know from grafana you would need to create some API endpoints for data output and then use it as data source and configure some demo dashboard's, here is example I found https://grafana.com/grafana/plugins/raintank-worldping-app

  12. Be able to set custom Apdex alert value

    Apdex alerts are currently hard-coded to 0.3 in 1 hour. It'd be nice if we could set the the threshold to a custom value rather than hard-coded at 0.3

  13. "tcps" type check

    Currently we have HTTP, HTTPS, ICMP, and TCP type checks. These cover probably most things, with TCP being the escape valve for non-HTTP based services. However, I have some non-HTTP services that are nevertheless behind TLS, for example LDAPS. It would be good to have these checked not only as TCP but as TCP+TLS, with the same certificate verification logic that goes into HTTPS. That is, this would be to TCP as HTTPS is to HTTP.

  14. Expected HTTP status codes

    Would be handy to have a simple "Yes a 405 here is okay" or something along those lines, for unusual but expected healthy status. Not sure how much development effort this would be to implement

    Thanks for posting this suggestion, this is something under my radar for the moment, gathering interest.

    As an alternative it’s possible to specify a string to search in the body, this will ignore the status code (but it only works if there is a body of course).

  15. DNS record checks

    Hi,
    I have implemented a simple php script on one of my servers to take a query via GET method and returns the requested DNS record.
    The site is restricted to updown.io servers and uses a URL in the following format :

    https://webserver.com/lookup.php?T=A&D=google.co.uk&R=IP

    This uses the following fields :
    T - Type of record to return eg. MX/A/TXT
    D - Domain to check eg. google.co.uk
    R - Record field to return. eg. ip for ip address
    The server code simple checks if the record type is a valid one we accept, checks the domain name is in a valid format…

    Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve just merged this with another one about DNS check. This is something we’re thinking about but is not planned yet.

    In the meantime what you made is a great workaround, if other users are interested I encourage them to leave a comment here with a way to contact them so you may give them the URL of your service if you want.

  16. Group identical domain suffixes when ordering lexically

    Right now I have about 20 subdomains across 3 top-level domains.

    The current "domain-suffix-oblivious" lexical ordering is kind of a mess.

    I really wish all my "hexstreamsoft.com" subdomains were grouped together, and same thing for my "hexstream.net" and "hexstream.xyz" subdomains separately. Right now those are all "randomly" jumbled up together based on the lexical order of their lowest subdomain components.

  17. Make detailed pricing information publicly available (without registering and logging in)

    updown.io is STUPENDOUSLY inexpensive compared to most other uptime monitoring solutions available today. This is obviously one of your strongest selling points.

    So, "hiding" detailed pricing information on the logged-in-users-only page https://updown.io/credits/buy seems counter-productive. I was especially surprised by the big discounts given when buying credits in bulk. It seems to me that a version of this page (or equivalent information) should be made available for everyone, even if they haven't signed up for the service yet or are currently logged out. (This would make it easier for fans to share this information with friends or other prospective users, as…

  18. Still cannot prevent an updown.io check from following redirects

    I raised this same issue under this discussion almost two years - unfortunately it's been completely ignored: https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/38068798-add-the-ability-to-disable-following-redirects.

    I've worked around this in the past but it's starting to cause problems again, so I'm raising it again and this time I'll expand on the specifics of the problem I'm having.

    I run web services from behind Cloudflare. When you set up Cloudflare for proxying, you provide your backend DNS entries to them and enable proxying. They'll then create public facing DNS entries for you that point to Cloudflare, and proxy connections through to your backend. For this, Cloudflare automatically…

  19. Add credit usage estimation based on past usage (including SMS)

    There is a credits usage estimation based on the current load. However our credits are mostly used by SMS messages. The current estimation is usefull but it would be great to also have an estimation based on past usage (inclunding SMS messages).

  20. Send a webhook-event for Apdex alerts

    It is already possible to "Be alerted (by email) when your website's Apdex drops more than 0.3 in 1 hour". It would be great if this event could also send a webhook-request. This would allow us to be automatically notified in our custom monitoring-system when the Apdex suddenly drops for a website.
