What is UptimeRobot?

UptimeRobot provides a free website monitoring service, supporting multiple monitoring types including HTTP, keyword, ping, and port.

How It Works

UptimeRobot triggers user defined alerts by monitoring websites.
  • When a monitor is Down (alertTypeFriendlyName == 'Down') in UptimeRobot, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When a monitor is Up (alertTypeFriendlyName == 'Up') in UptimeRobot, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
