Sometimes you need to monitor a particularly flaky site that tends to go down for less than a minute, a few times a day. You figure it's not a big deal, but you're not sure how to silence the alerts.
OnlineOrNot provides you two ways of dealing with this (both are features of our paid plans):
- Waiting for several failed checks before alerting
You can configure both of these settings when adding a new page, or by editing your existing page:
Retries let you specify how many times you want to re-check a site before deciding it's down.
By default, OnlineOrNot retries each page once before sending an alert.
Waiting for several failed checks before alerting lets you ensure several monitors have failed before sending an alert to a human.
By default, OnlineOrNot sends an alert the first time a check fails.
