What is Uptime?

The Uptime of a website is defined as the percentage of time it has been operating normally within a specified period of time.

How to track the uptime of a Website?

Create a HTTP Monitor to track it's uptime percentage in the last 24 hours, 7 days and 30 days time period. Pinger Man track's these values in three digit decimal precision. A downtime of just 26 seconds will result in the 30 day uptime to go from 100% to 99.999%.

From the Monitors area you can see the 30 day uptime of all monitors as a percentage. A graph shows all events that happened in the last 24 hour period. The Overall Uptime lists the average Uptime across all monitors in the account for the 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days and 90 days period. The latest downtime event across all monitors is shown in the top right of the Monitor dashboard.

Clicking on a monitor will show it's uptime statistics such as:-

  • Since when the Monitor has been Up (it's uptime)
  • The Uptime percentage in the last 24 hours, 7 days and 30 days
  • When the last downtime happened
