Google is testing a Slow label right now and it appears to be visible to some mobile Android users. It clearly signals that Google is taking web performance seriously, especially mobile. Site owners would be wise to identify performance problem areas by getting actual visibility into how actual users view their pages. We recommend using Pingdom’s Real User Monitoring.
It may happen that you find yourself in a situation where Pingdom reports that your site or server is unavailable, but in your browser you see it as up and running. There may be many reasons that can explain the discrepancy.
There’s an annual conference in Sweden, organized solely for female students in tech, called DataTjej (roughly translated “Data Girl” or “Geek Girl” if you will). Its purpose is to promote the tech industry to female students on computer engineer programmes at Swedish universities. Hosted at the prestigious Chalmers University in Gothenburg last week, we went to meet the next generation of geeks.
Alerting is the cornerstone of any monitoring tool. When your website goes down, or when there’s a problem, you want to know about it before it affects your customers or business. In this blog post we’ll go through a basic setup of alerting so you can make sure you get the right notifications right on time.
In this blog post we’ll show you how to get even more out of your monitoring by integrating Nagios with Pingdom.
We attended Mälardalens högskola’s biggest annual initiative where students and future employers get an opportunity to meet. After all, with more than 13,000 students — and a computer engineer programme — we’re bound to meet some future colleagues, right?
Another neat feature to the Pingdom uptime monitoring service added: You can now choose from which location, or locations, you want to monitor your check.
The rate of employment will definitely not slow down so we made a film about what it’s like working at Pingdom. Here you’ll see what’s been going on behind the scenes.
A few weeks ago, nine of us got on a plane and travelled to California. We attended the always awesome Velocity Conference in the heart of Silicon Valley.
We are very happy to announce that as of August 4 we are implementing gzip compression in our HTTP and HTTPS checks.
