Uptime monitoring with Pingdom and Hosted Graphite

When we ask our customers what they use to track the uptime (or more importantly downtime) of their sites, Pingdom is typically the answer. As part of an integrated monitoring philosophy, it’s essential that your internal monitoring process can also relate to external checks – combining multiple sources of information gives you a clear picture of your users’ experience.

We’ve added Pingdom as a new data source to Hosted Graphite – simply copy the webhook URL and direct your Pingdom alerts to it and you can view uptime events as annotations on your graphs.
