What is Pingdom?

Pingdom is a service that tracks the uptime, downtime, and performance of websites.

How It Works

Pingdom triggers user defined alerts by monitoring website uptime, downtime, and performance.
  • When an check is down (previous_state == "UP" && current_state == "DOWN") in Pingdom, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When an check is up (previous_state == "DOWN" && current_state == "UP") in Pingdom, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.

Integration Walkthrough

In this integration tutorial we will show you how to send alerts from Pingdom into PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 5 minutes. We assume that you already have a PagerTree and Pingdom account setup. It is also assumed you have created at least 1 Pingdom check. If you need more information on how to create a new Pingdom check, please see Pingdom’s documentation.
