Pingometer helps you gain instant insights into your website’s availability and performance.
With Pingometer’s Integration, Zenduty sends new Pingometer website/service downtime alert to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Pingometer website/service downtime alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.
Whenever Pingometer detects that a website/service is down after pinging the website/server, it triggers an alert in Zenduty. Zenduty will then create an incident. When that website/service goes back up, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.
You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Pingometer alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
