Another great article about monitor.us just posted on worldtechlogic at https://www.worldtechlogic.com/2006/12/04/monitorus-free-network-and-website-monitoring/.
A fragment from the article:
“Downtimes have been nightmares for all of us. It takes at least 1-2 hours during the day and 5-6 hours during the night before you find out that your websites down. Also keep in mind that your hosting provider may not able and/or may not be interested to provide you with objective uptime report. Indeed, very few providers can do monitoring from outside of their infrastructure, so for example when the router is down you will get false positive uptime report. ISPs do not always give out their network monitoring data, as well. There is no way we can monitor our websites 24 hours a day. Thankfully, there’s monitor.us.”
