Events happen whenever a monitor's status changes. Pinger Man monitors have the following event types. Some events generate an Alert for which email notifications are sent.
Events can be viewed from two locations. Global Events can be seen by going to the Events Area of the application (accessible through the left sidebar). This shows events across all monitors. Events for a monitor can be seen by clicking on a Monitor and going to the Events tab. The details for the events include it's type, when it Started, when it Finished (empty if the event is ongoing), how long the monitor was in this state and a small description to indicate things like status codes.
