SUMMARY: Check out this view of the world with what has been down in the last hour according to @Pingdom Tweet this

We all know that things happen on the Internet and sites go down for all kinds of reasons. If something would happen to your site you should, of course, monitor it so you are the first to know of any issues. Just as you have backup and antivirus in place for your computer, you should have monitoring in place for your websites.

To give you an idea of how the Internet is feeling right now, we created this animated map of the world. It shows all the outages we have detected in the last hour (on a rolling basis). That means that whenever you visit the page it will show you the outages we’ve detected in the past hour, so it’s always giving you an up-to-date view of what’s been happening around the world as we see it.

You can see the live version of the world map at:

Why does the numeric value go backwards every few seconds? False positives being corrected on additional checks if it’s a live stream, an error, or is it taking into consideration exactly 1 hour which therefore is constantly changing as time passes reducing the total value?


It’s probably a combination of various things. But it’s always the last 60 minutes, whenever you look at the map, so it’s not a cumulative number. That means it can go up and down.

Beautiful visualization. 
Is this too focused on “where are Pingdom’s customers?”. I don’t want to move servers to Greenland just because the most popular locations have more outages.
Any way to show a heat map of outages over customers? Would be cool to see “uhoh, there’s trouble in Turkey”.

Who loves their DNS/Domain registrar? Network Solutions just is not cutting it anymore… Need to be able to host .ca domains and allow 3rd party as a secondary. NetSol does not allow this.

That is cool.  Just as you have backup and antivirus in place for your computer
