A check can be in one of four different states:

  • Up - Check state is reported as OK and Uptime.com has not issued an alert.
  • Down - Check state is reported as CRITICAL. Uptime.com has issued an alert.
  • Paused - Check is not actively monitoring, collecting metrics, or issuing alerts.
  • Maintenance - Check is in maintenance state. Click here to learn more about maintenance states.

Please note: it is possible to pause checks in bulk.

Pausing a Group Check

A Group Check nests individual checks, and pausing this check type applies differently than normal check types. Because a Group Check functions similarly to an individual check, pausing a Group check pauses only the Group check and not the checks nested within.

Deleting a Check

Delete a check from Monitoring>Checks. Tick the box next to the check you wish to delete, then click Actions>Delete, or delete checks in bulk by selecting the desired checks and clicking Bulk Actions>Delete Selected Checks.

Please Note: Deleted checks & associated alerts will be non-recoverable after 30 days.

Deleting Checks in a Group Check

A Group Check nests individual checks, and deletion of check applies differently to this check type. 

A Group Check in this sense can be considered like an individual check. Deleting a Group check does not delete any checks nested within it. However, deleting an individual check from within a Group check does remove that check from your account.
