Site downtime can mean loss of revenue and user trust, so it’s important to stay one step ahead by knowing when your website is up or down.

In addition to Testomato‘s automated website tests, we wanted to ensure you also have an easy way to check whether or not your website is available to users.

That’s why we’re excited to announce Uptime Monitoring & Response Time for all your Testomato projects!

How Uptime Monitoring Works

  • Testomato automatically tests your web projects every 15 seconds to check they’re online and how quickly they’re responding.
  • Projects on your dashboard (All Projects) will now display a new circle icon in green, orange, or red that indicates whether your project is up or down.uptime monitoring
  • Individual project dashboards will display a new circle icon as well as information, including: website status and HTTP codes.
  • If a project is down for more than 20 seconds, you’ll receive an email notification.

  • Your Reports tab will now include a new chart for uptime percentage and a history of all project response time checks.

In addition to tracking whether or not your website is up or down, Testomato is also able to track your project’s response time.

This means that we’re able to show how much time it took each phase of a page to download. In your daily response time charts, each point represents a two-minute interval, whose value is calculated as the median amount it took to load.

Uptime Monitoring & Response Time is automatically enabled for all paid subscriptions and newly registered users (Free Trial).

If you’ve already started your Free Trial, you can enable it in your Project Settings.
