  • @GetKVM_Ash said: It surprises me how fast the page loads with so many checks

    Checks are done independently with a bash script. The PHP page merely reads a couple text files and formats the display. If you happen to load the PHP page while the bash script is in progress you'll see 'Running...' at top in place of 'Last Run'.

  • @sleddog,
    Messaged you about having two of our Xen VPS nodes added to the list (in France and Germany).

    Thanks exextatic. The list is comprised of hosts that have made offers here (or on LEB) and I'd like to keep that informal rule... maybe you'll consider making an offer? :)

  • Scheduled maintenance ruined our perfect record :(

  • @sleddog,
    Waiting on Chief to post it on LEB, and for me to have a full 7 days registered here before I post it here :)

  • Thanks for sharing and I'm sure a lot of people will find it useful.

    Deja vu... Got a different IP in Buffalo that responds on port 80?

    Woop, looks like everybody got a reset. Let the uptime rivalry begin.

    It's August now :)

  • Ah reset every month, im with you.

    Previous months' stats are there, I just haven't written the php to access them.... maybe some kind of history/summary page...

  • So how does one add a server/IP to be monitored to this list?

    Give me an IP (on your infrastructure) that responds on port 80. The script can monitor any tcp port but for consistency I've been using 80.

    And everyone listed has posted an offer here on LET or had one appear on LEB.... :)

  • If you've closed it down I'd love the list of IPs/Hosts, we're building uptime benchmarks (by location) into SB.

    Several of the monitored targets went "down" for extended periods, yet there was no evidence of an outage (here, on twitter, on the hosts' status page, etc.) Some would come back after 8 hours or more, some stayed permanently offline. As the targets are "test IPs" I concluded that the IP had been re-purposed or re-assigned....

    I've now dropped all problematic targets and reinstated the page at http://chi.blite.ca/pungcm/

    Hosts are welcome to PM me to be added or to have the listed IP changed.

    They're freely available here and here.

    YA, it's back ;-)

    Thanks @sleddog. Was beginning to think you may have ended pung testing.

    Prometeus had a node crash last night, I guess test IP is not on that node or would have shown a couple minutes downtime.

  • @onepound said: Was beginning to think you may have ended pung testing.

    I don't want the testing to reflect negatively on any provider without due cause. Large amount of downtime might mean only that the provider changed things so that the test IP no longer responds on port 80, but some people will see it as "oh, that provider is crappy"....
