Dashboard Features

Fast Global Metrics: 15-min cached 24hr Global Uptime value, and 15-min global response times. Response time metrics are also color coded based on the duration of downtime. 

Check Cards: Check cards contain response time graphs depending on check type. Certain checks, such as SSL and Malware/Blacklist, do not display graphs. Each card is sorted by down state, then by duration of downtime by default. Click Show More to add an additional 4 check cards. Loading more checks affects Auto-Refresh Rate (see below). 


Checks Data: Quickly determine how many checks are running, how many are down, the ratio of uptime for the past 24 hours, and the average response time for all checks. 

Clickable Filters: Easily filter access to checks by status or check type; click the status or check type to see all corresponding checks. 

Latest Alerts: View the Latest Events that caused an alert, and check the status of any downtime with short summaries and access to more detailed reporting. The customizable dashboard allows you to change how these alerts are displayed. See more options below.
