Overall Satisfaction with Pingdom

I used Pingdom at Qwiki where we added checks for various endpoints to ensure uptime and reasonable response times.

It is by far the most simple monitoring tool. It doesn't provide you all the details an internal monitoring tool can provide but for most part, it's a good must have due to ease of setup and maintenance (or lack of!).
  • simple endpoint checks
  • no maintenance on your end
  • it works
  • keep it simple and don't add new things
  • It alerted us when the servers were down.
Are there competitors? There are internal monitoring tools but that's a huge degree of complexity you'll need to add to your system.
It's the first line of defense for knowing when your endpoints aren't accessible.
