Learn about the Wavefront Uptime Integration.

Uptime.com Integration

Uptime.com provides website downtime alerts by SMS, phone call and/or email if your website is down. Uptime.com checks your website availability at 1-minute intervals from 30 different locations across 6 continents.

This integration explains how to configure Uptime.com to push response time metrics and alerts to Wavefront. After you’ve completed the integration setup, you can view response time metrics and alerts for the websites that are being monitored by Uptime.com in Wavefront. In addition to setting up the metrics flow, this integration also installs a dashboard. Here’s a section of a dashboard displaying response time metrics:
