Uptime Checks at StatusPing come in different forms, but they all share the same base function – ensuring that your website or server is up and running without errors.
Uptime checks happen every minute by default from the specified primary location. However, you have the option to select the following interval from the setting page.
- 30 Seconds Interval
- 1 Minutes interval
- 5 Minutes Interval
- 10 Minutes Interval
- 30 Minutes Interval
- and 60 Minutes Interval.
To prevent any false alert, Each site is monitored from a primary location and verified from a secondary location. You can choose the primary location from within the StatusPing Dashboard, and We will only trigger the error if both primary and secondary location reports the site is down.
Uptime Check Options
By Default, to check the uptime, we'll send the get request to the site you provide. if it responds with a 2xx HTTP response , the check passes. In the setting screen of the site, there are several options available to customize this check.
HTTP Method: We support Get, Put, Post, and Patch HTTP methods, so you select it based on the site endpoint.
Response Checker: We can check the given string found on the response. We consider UP only when RESPONSE STRING is present on the response, if not will send an alert immediately.
HTTP Payload: This payload form data will be added along with an uptime check for all requests, except non-Get Requests. You have the option to add unlimited payload data.
Request Timeout: It basically means how long do we need to wait for the server to respond for this check. By default, it set 3 seconds. If you think your server is too fast or too slow, then you update this based on that.
Alert Setting: We'll only send you a downtime alert if your site is down longer than this amount of minutes. By default, it is set to 3.
