The big picture with every check
Imagine, if you will, that instead of one check every minute or five minutes that you could do five, ten, or more checks from multiple locations at the same time. Multiple simultaneous checks mean you get availability, performance, and function data for your websites, web applications, APIs, or servers from your chosen checkpoints all at the same time. You get more comprehensive data and you learn about issues faster and catch partial outages sooner.
Faster error detection
You decide how many failed checks constitute an error
What percentage of failed checks from your concurrent monitor do you consider a confirmed error: 20%, 30%, 50%, or more? At what percentage of failed checks should Uptrends redo the test to confirm an error before issuing an alert? With Concurrent Monitoring, you decide.
Confirmed error threshold
Rather than wait for a second test to confirm an error, with Concurrent Monitoring, you choose what percentage of failures automatically generate alerts. You get notified about problems faster.
Unconfirmed error threshold
Some of your checks from a concurrent monitor failed but not enough to call it an error, so you want to check again. If the unconfirmed threshold is met, Uptrends tests again before issuing the alert.
Simultaneous checks from multiple locations give you a comprehensive view of the uptime, performance, and function for your websites, APIs, and servers. You get more data and faster alerting.
How it works
Any monitor can be concurrent
Any Uptrends monitor can have Concurrent Monitoring enabled. It only takes a couple of minutes to make the switch.
Enable Concurrent Monitoring
In any monitor’s settings, just flip the switch to enable Concurrent Monitoring. Every synthetic monitor type can become a concurrent monitor.
Set your error tolerances
Decide when you want Uptrends to do a double check using your Unconfirmed error threshold. Use your Confirmed error threshold when Uptrends should notify you right away.
Choose your checkpoints
Choose a minimum of three checkpoints; however choosing five or more opens up more checkpoint options. When Uptrends performs a check, Uptrends uses each checkpoint you designate on every check.
Collect your data
You have a lot of options when viewing your Concurrent Monitoring results.
Filter your monitor logs
Each Concurrent Monitoring check generates multiple Check Detail reports. You can choose to see just the overall result or every individual check in your logs.
Special dashboard tiles
We developed special tiles to show you your concurrent data. Your charts and tables can show you metrics from all of the individual checks based on checkpoints or from the averaged overall report.
View your concurrent data in your monitor’s dashboard. Your monitor specific dashboard recognizes concurrent monitors and adjusts the dashboard accordingly.
