I have integrated Pingdom with OpsGenie so that when the service which we are monitoring is down then it will create an alert which will create an alert in OpsGenie through SMS, email and call and user who receive notification of this alert will fix it when the application goes up an alert in both OpsGenie and Pingdom will automatically close.

We mainly use SolarWinds Pingdom in order to keep an eye on the availability of some of our services/servers. We're using the product's "Uptime" service to monitor the health / availability / uptime / response time / outages and by doing so - to be alerted in real time on problematic events via alerts (email, Slack, etc.).

We SolarWinds Pingdom to monitor our products from the customer's view via the internet with different aspects and use cases. We are a DevOps team comprising of operations and development specialists supporting the product. As such, we require external monitoring so we can react quicker in case of incidents and problems. With the uptime and transaction checks, we get prompt alerts for any failures that might occur before our customers do. As a result, the software helps us implement remedial action preventing further complications.

We are currently monitoring the servers on which our Saas based applications are running and we are monitoring uptime, downtime, availability and if and when an application is down, we are promptly notified so that we can look for the cause of the issue and fix it and keep the applications up and running. We have configured daily, weekly and monthly reporting so that we can identify how many times our applications went offline and what was the total downtime and what was the time to recovery. We are also monitoring the SSL, SMTP, and Response time of our applications.

We use SolarWinds Pingdom to monitor our production environments in real-time to detect and log any downtime that may occur, we also use the integration with OpsGenie to page our team should a downtime event go over a threshold we have specified. Thanks to SolarWinds Pingdom we are able to react much faster to downtime incidents and typically resolve these problems before our customers have noticed there may be a problem.

We use SolarWinds Pingdom to monitor our websites and some other basic services like SMTP. We use it to provide uptime reports on a monthly basis as well. The alerting is used to alert staff when outages occur. The alert goes out using the SolarWinds Pingdom app as well as SMS.

We needed a service that would monitor our sites' uptime and alert us if any of our web services go down. We have a main web application that supports thousands of customers, and about 30 smaller applications that support single high-value customers. This means we need at least 30 checks (really more like 40 because there are a number of different endpoints to check within our main application) so we wanted something that could be configured programmatically so that we don't have to maintain all of these checks by hand.

We use Pingdom to monitor 30+ different web endpoints in terms of uptime - both internal and 3rd party applications. We have a team of admins that monitor different services and are notified within a minute via the Pingdom app, text, and email when anything goes down. Pingdom also gives us insight into what caused the error. This is an invaluable tool!

The product [SolarWinds Pingdom] is used to monitor different aspects of our product from different views, being as latency, or some special characteristics that we need to have available and measurable. [SolarWinds] Pingdom makes this easy and customizable, you can create custom monitoring scenarios and measure more than just the response time of the server.

We use SolarWinds Pingdom for monitoring internet uptime at our client facilities as well as to keep track of outages of their internet properties as well. We receive SMS and email notifications promptly when service interruptions are detected and can manage the frequency and method of those notices. It has worked for us for several years now without interruption and is a core part of our monitoring platform.

We needed simple uptime monitoring for a few customer-facing services that integrates with Atlassian Statuspage and didn't want to invest a lot of time and money to get that. Compared NewRelic, Datadog and Pingdom, the two first are too complex for what we need and the pricing was not a good fit. SolarWinds Pingdom was good enough for our needs; we did a test run in a week and then paid for the subscription. We have been using simple uptime checks and also tested transaction monitoring for a sign-in flow. It works great, simple setup, and uses Selenium for the actual testing. The only thing to improve is to have some sort of ENV variable instead of just putting a password in plain text.

We use SolarWinds for a few use cases. Most importantly we use SolarWinds Pingdom to manage our server network down/up status. We've always received stellar customer services and the product has worked for us without error. When we have a server that is down, our team is notified via text and email based upon our notification configuration.

We host a set of servers that we use for demonstration purposes, and to support ongoing commitment to open source communities by ensuring that they experience great uptime with our servers and services. Knowing that a server is down quickly is key to maintaining uptime. On the flip side, we need a solution that isn't burdensome or requires lots of agents or other integration in a broad set of target servers and services for monitoring. We find that Pingdom is right-sized for us. Not too complex, but sophisticated enough for the vast majority of our use cases. Pricing is right.

Pingdom is the market leader in web monitoring tools. We use its monitoring for all of our clients. They are reliable and should be proud of [their] dependability. Pingdom somewhat serves as a tornado siren. we need the service the most when our client sites are in trouble. It's nice to never have to worry Pingdom.

We use Pingdom to monitor the uptime of several different pages on our website, as well as other web pages that support our website. Pingdom has also helped us monitor page load times and has helped us address downtime issues instantly. We use Pingdom within our team, so if a page is down or failing to load, there is typically someone ready to address the issue within minutes.

We use Pingdom to monitor our websites and services. It has been very useful and informative when things go wrong. The messages and emails are reliable when one of our services goes down. I highly recommend Pingdom as they seem to be the industry standard in services and uptime monitoring.

Pingdom is a helpful tool that allows us to monitor websites we develop and run a variety of tests, identify trends, to ensure optimal performance. We especially love the page speed analysis tool which is helpful to benchmark our clients' websites' with performance grades and identity ways to improve page speed and overall performance.

I've deployed SolarWinds Pingdom in a few customer deployments to help facilitate site checking of the network post migration. This tool helps to check interconnectivity between data centers by checking the recovery and response of remote applications during a migration exercise. Demonstrating to the customer the ability of the tool to check their end hosts/applications and the length of outage builds up their confidence during a maintenance activity.
