This is going to give a lot of products a run for their money being free and having everything a small to medium sized business needs including monitoring, alerts, multiple check types and even status pages. I'm guessing this would tie in very nicely with the other Freshworks' products as well.

Pros:

- Love the friendly feel of this monitoring tool. Unlike all other "serious" tools.

- The Reports section is very detailed!

Cons:

- None that I can think of

Thanks a lot Dimitris. It means a lot to us, coming from an early customer of us.

I monitor a popular community website for downtime using Freshping. The mobile version of the community is buggy and Freshping helps me understand if it is the site's problem or a bug that is denying me access through the phone. Setup literally took me under a minute!

Pros:

Simple to setup. Has a clean UI. Integrates with Slack.

Cons:

Nothing to report of as yet.

Are the status pages really Free forever? Are we limiting the status pages, one per account, as in Pingdom?

Pros:

Checked it out briefly. Was able to on-board the checks quickly. The UI looks sleek.

Cons:

Nothing yet.

Hi saravanan, sorry we saw this msg late. Status pages are free and we don't restrict 1 status page per account. We provide upto 5 pages per account in our free forever plan. Hope this helps. Please let us know your experience of using status page. My team is eager to hear more feedbacks.

Smooth experience setting up. Nice holistic view of all sites being tracked. The public status page is also a neat touch.

Pros:

Simple and easy to setup and use

Cons:

Not totally bad, but could use SMS notifications

Freshping is a huge upgrade over Insping. From the look and feel of the page, to the revamped core system. It is very easy to set up which team members will receive which alerts, and the alert system in general is very robust. It integrates nicely into other Freshworks applications, and also with Slack and web hooks.

Pros:

Hugely improved UI makes Freshping easy to use, and also easy to look at.

Cons:

There are some slight issues detecting my HTTPS endpoint.

I have been using other products for uptime monitoring and public status page. Some of them did not have User friendly UI where as the others were expensive for multiple monitoring for a 1 minute interval. On both front, Freshping looks like a clear winner.

API latency analysis from multiple geographies is definitely going to be crucial for infrastructure planning. The dashboards are user friendly and the public status page is definitely helpful.

Apdex is again going to be great for engineers to keep the response time in track for various APIs.

Kudos to the entire team for an amazing service and that too for free.

Pros:

UX is great.

Good to see a lot of checks other than just HTTP(s).

Global latency tracker is an important factor.

Super easy to setup.

Cons:

There is no pause monitoring.

It would be really great to have a report download feature or a monthly uptime report.
