  1. Integration with status.io

    Provide integration with status.io, so your status page is updated automatically when updown detects an issue.

    As a data point, status.io is another well known "status page" provider. They're actively developed (unlike Atlassian StatusPage these days), and used by a lot of places.

  2. Microsoft Teams integration (not via 3rd party)

    Sending messages through a third party is not that great and imho should not be necessary for a large service like MS Teams.

  3. JSON version of the status page

    Having a JSON version of the status page allows any possible integration with 3rd party tools/dashboards. Lowers the amount of API requests required to get similar content (even though I think not all of the information that is currently visible on the status page is also available using the existing API). Probably you want to put it behind the API key except maybe for public status pages.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. Show Total Time on dashboard

    I like to see the Total Time from the last 24 hours (so REDIRECTIONS + NAME LOOKUP + CONNECTION + TLS HANDSHAKE + RESPONSE TIME) on the dashboard.

    Would be very nice to not only see the Apdex, but also the Total Time for all websites at one overview page.

  8. Allow Green Status when using letsencrypt staging CA

    In dev environments is common to use the letsencrypt staging CA rather than the production one .

    This CA does not verify using the standard system ca store.

    Would be useful to allow marking the letsencrypt staging ca as allowed on a per check basis

  9. 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 than the time of…

  10. Finetune the SSL expiration alert period

    Right now, Let's Encrypt certificate expiration alert is sent 14 days, 7 days, 1 day before.

    I have a certbot that renews it 5 days before.
    So every month, I receive alerts 14 days and 7 days for all domains,
    which are perfectly normal. Hence, some 'alert noise' that I don't take into account anymore...

    Suggestion:
    Let us select a custom period for SSL expiration dates.
    I think globally, with 2 different settings: one for "standard" certificate, the other for 'let's encrypt' certificates.

    --> only alert when worth alerting :)
    --> smarter monitoring

    Hello,

    Actually 14, 7, 1 is already the special schedule for let’s encrypt certificates. This is automatically detected by updown.io so you don’t have to, normal 1-year certificates get an additional 30 days reminder.

    The threshold for let’s encrypt certs starts at 14 days because the default renew delay is 30 days before expiration: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html. This can be down to 23 days with a weekly cron for example (pretty common) so that’s why we chose 14 days, so you have plenty of time to renew but still have time to investigate and fix any potential auto-renew issues.

    If you’d rather renew your cert only 5 days before expiration that’s up to you but we won’t recommend or support this configuration as we consider it dangerous ☺

    I’ll mark this suggestion as “Under Review” to measure the need for this.

  11. Test based on hash

    It would be handy if instead of content we could choose to hash the response and test if the response matches the hash.

  12. 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.

  16. 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

    Add notification escalation.

    Add a method for responsible people to aknowledge reception of an alert. Add an escalation of alerts in case someone did not respond in due time (15 min, or parametrable).

  19. Alias for alert email addresses

    When using a service such as StatusPage for client updates, it provides a long unique email address for each type of alert we need to monitor. Without an alias it’s difficult to see if we are selecting the correct alert when assigning to each monitoring process.
