DigitalOcean Uptime is a monitoring service that checks the health of any URL or IP address. You can use it to monitor the latency, uptime, and SSL certificate of any website or host, and can choose to receive alerts via email or Slack when your site is down, experiencing high latency, or has an SSL certificate that’s about to expire. Learn more about Uptime.
Each Uptime check has a dashboard with detailed information about uptime, latency, SSL expiry, and configured alerts. To navigate to an Uptime check’s dashboard, click the check’s name on the Uptime page in the control panel.
The status page is broken down into three major sections:
At the top of the dashboard, there are three cards that provide summaries of critical information: 30 Day Global Uptime, SSL Certificate Expiry, and Last Outage / Duration.
The next section shows detailed regional uptime information and latency graphs.
The Regional Status section shows Up/Down status indicators for each selected check region, as well as how long connectivity from each region has been up or down.
The Regional Latency graph shows a plot of latency in each selected region, for the time period specified in the dropdown menu. The time period defaults to Last 1 hour. Times are shown using a 24-hour format in the time zone specified by your browser.
You can zoom in on a particular section of the graph by clicking and dragging over the desired slice of time. Double-clicking the graph zooms you back out one level. You can also reset your view by selecting the desired time period in the dropdown menu.
The third section of the status page shows the Uptime check’s settings, along with any alerts you’ve configured.
The Uptime Check Settings card shows the following information:
The Active Uptime Alerts section shows a list of alerts set up for this check. The table shows details about the alert, along with a Triggered/Not Triggered status message. To edit or delete an alert, use the dropdown menu on the right-hand side of the table. For more detailed steps, see How to Edit Alerts and How to Destroy Alerts.
