  1. Order of the bulk update notification recipients

    What is the current logic for the sorting of the bulk update notifications? I hope to see the same order as the 'checks page'. [ Alias / URL ]

  3. Localized public status page

    It would be great to provide localized versions of status page based on user agent language (i.e. russian, german etc.)

  5. Server should return its idea of "current time" for reliable delta ("last check X seconds ago", etc)

    When I added "last check" and "next check" information on my custom status page using the API, I opted to give a handy "time delta", for instance I might say things like (paraphrased) "the last check was 04:42 ago at 00:46:08" and "the next check will be in 00:18 at 00:51:08".

    This of course requires having an idea of what the "current time" is.

    I initially used simply the (client) time at which I sent the request to the server, but obviously that's fundamentally flawed in many ways, as the client clock and server clock may not be synchronised, and…

    This is a legit question and fortunately it has already been tackled by HTTP. You can find in the API response headers the “Date” field which contains the local server time. You can use it as a baseline for your time difference comparisons.

    It is not by default accessible for CORS requests but I’ve just added the proper expose header so it’s now accessible from javascript too, here is an example:

    fetch(“https://updown.io/api/checks?api-key=ro-xxxxx”).then(function(res) { console.log(res.headers.get(“date”)) })

    Feel free to use it now :)

    But keep in mind that next_check time being in the past will still happen, this is because it’s value is updated after the check, which can take time (between 0 and 30 seconds depending on the server response time and latency) So it can be up to 30 seconds late even on synchronized clock, in this case, you can display something like: “currently running” or something…

    Hi, there is a fallback icon of course if you site don’t have any, but in you case your server does serve a /favicon.ico file which is a blank gif (not very valid), that’s why you see a blank space instead of the default icon. You should remove this gif if you don’t want it to showup.

  7. Add "Pause Monitoring" to API.

    Add a method on the API to pause monitoring. This would be useful when site is entering Maintenance Mode etc..

  8. Lower check frequency

    Lower check frequency for sites that just have to be online, but nothing relies on them. (ex: 1h)

  9. Alert after certain time of downtime

    Implement a function to only send out alert IF website has been down more than ie 5/10 minutes would be AWESOME.

    This is already the case, thanks to the double check we only send alerts if the downtime is longer than your check frequency. So if you set check frequency to 5min, you’ll only receive alerts for downtimes longer than 5min.

  10. Disable email alerts

    An option to disable email alerts if Slack integration is enabled would be great, cuts down the number of notifications. Small thing but would be great :)

  11. Allow using POST method for monitoring

    I’d like to switch to monitoring my API endpoint with updown.io, but the primary endpoint uses POST. Being able to provide custom headers is certainly nice, but being able to customize the request further (i.e. method and submitted content) would be much nicer. Site24x7 which I’m using now lets you provide form data and even check returned value for specific JSON fields.

  13. More frequent status checks

    Say every 10 seconds. Perhaps with a restricted set of monitoring locations if that is what it takes to achieve this.

  15. Add Timezone to notifications

    Currently, at least in the Slack notifications, the timestamp is sent, but there is no timezone. The slack channel I am using has members from multiple timezones. I have the TZ in updown set to UTC, so it would be useful if the notification also mentioned "UTC" with the timestamp.

  16. Affiliate Program

    Love love love updown's service! Would love to see affiliate program or refer a friend link. I run a marketing blog with quite a bit of traffic and would love to write up a review. Will most likely be writing one anyways, but I think you could spread the word faster if you hit up bloggers with an incentive.
