Freshping is used by our I.T. department along with other tools that monitor the health of our systems. It is one of a few indicators that there may be a problem. We use it to monitor services directly used by our users. We also integrate it with our ticketing system, Freshservice.
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to configure
  • Simple alerts
  • Better integration with Freshservice to generate tickets
  • Monitor internal systems
  • Better ability to customize
Freshing is well suited for user-facing systems, the systems they directly use. It also serves as nice eye-candy for them to look at. It does not monitor internal IT systems as well as we had hoped, so we use other tools to monitor those systems.

  • Good visual for end users
  • Adds another check to verify uptime/outages
  • Cost for us was free, so we had nothing to lose by adding it
Freshping utilizes the same core interface as the other Freshworks products, so it was very easy for us to learn due to already knowing Freshservice. We found Freshping almost trivial to setup and customize a user-facing status page. It took less than an hour to have something we could configure and share with users.
To date we have had no need of support from Freshping, it has just been that easy to use. It is highly intuitive and self-explanatory.
We did not choose Freshping over these, we selected it as an additional tool in our toolset. It is important to have multiple angles of monitoring, and FreshPing was a natural addition because of its integration with our existing trouble ticketing solution and it being completely free to use. Compared to PRTG, it is much easier to create a systems status/uptime page for the end users to view.

Freshping is being used by our technology team to monitor our web applications' online status. Actually, it's one of a couple of tools we are using with the same objective because we have had not-so-reliable information from all of the different tools. So, as they do not add much overhead, we just prefer to have our apps monitored by different services at the same time.
  • The UI is neat. It's very easy to use, and with lots of information.
  • It's very easy to set up.
  • The "badge" feature is interesting for showing up on institutional website.
  • We have had some false positives, although it is not the only service which had this issue. They are not frequent, but they do happen.
  • The status page would be useful to be able to configure different languages (e.g.: Spanish).
Freshping is suitable for anyone looking for a service to monitor the status of applications without much trouble and effort on it. The free tier will sure be enough for a lot of users. I wouldn't recommend this if you need very customized checks to define being up or down of course, or a very custom status page.

  • It's allowed us to respond fast to problems of the availability of our product.
It's perfectly easy and straightforward to use. There's no need to read documentation, you just register and will surely be able to configure whatever monitor you want to set up. It's also very easy to use other features like the status page, reporting, alerts, etc.
I haven't used support at all.
We use Uptime Robot, and also some internal health checks, which report directly to our emails and chat applications. They all work "pretty fine," but unfortunately all of them have had some false positives or missed some minor downtime, so as for us, it doesn't add too much overhead, and we prefer to use several. I would say all the ones mentioned are good for the job.
