How can we improve updown.io?

More apdex values: 1.5s and 2.5s

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I interpret the apdex time value you configure for a site as the desired maximum response time for the site. If this is so, it seems odd that it maxes out at 2s. While a commercial site might be able to afford the hw to get it below 1s easily, not everyone can.

So, could we have a little more granularity in the 1s to 2s region?

Most website can easily respond in less than 0.5s even if queries from the other half of the world. We initially supported only up to 1s and added 2s later but we don’t want to encourage people into thinking 2s+ response time is acceptable so we won’t go higher. If your website is slower and this is acceptable to you it’ll of course monitor properly, but you’re not gonna be able to show an all green Apdex score.
