Uptime Monitoring

 

Your Honeybadger account comes with uptime monitoring. Our geographically distributed network of friendly robots will ping your site every few minutes. If a check fails, we'll let you know.

You can set up fairly sophisticated checks based on the HTTP status code, or the response body.

Site overview

Setup

Just tell us which URL you want monitored. We'll ask you what you consider "success" - maybe you expect the HTTP response code to be 200, or maybe you expect the page to contain the words "all systems go". Here are your options:

  • Success - notifies you that your site is down when your server responds with a non-20x status code. When in doubt, this is the one you probably want.
  • Exact - prompts you to enter an HTTP status code. If you entered 302 it would ensure that the server responds with a 302 status code.
  • Response body includes string - prompts you for a string (i.e. "Error") and notifies you when the response body matches.
  • Response body excludes string - prompts you for a string and notifies you if the response body does not match.

Hit "save" and you're done!
