  • Checkpoints
    Uptrends features a vast network of over 233 global monitoring checkpoints, which can be used to monitor your websites, servers, and web services so you can determine where a problem originates from. These external checkpoints help you protect the user experience outside your firewall. However, you may want to protect the internal user experience behind your firewall as well. For this task, Uptrends gives you the option to set up User-managed checkpoints yourself, based on a Docker installation and located inside your own network to run monitoring checks from there.
