Pingdom Integration

by Arjun July 6, 2011 | 2 min read

As part of our ongoing mission to help you keep tabs on your IT infrastructure, PagerDuty is pleased to announce integration with Pingdom; it’s now easier than ever to find out about and respond to website downtime.

Pingdom users can now take advantage of PagerDuty’s comprehensive alerting and scheduling functionality. Users can receive Pingdom alerts by phone, SMS, and email, and can acknowledge, escalate or resolve incidents on the go. PagerDuty also adds incident tracking to Pingdom and helps support teams set up fair on-call duty schedules.

About Pingdom

Want to be the first to know when your website goes down? Pingdom tracks uptime, verifying the availability of your website from multiple locations across the world. Should something go wrong, Pingdom also offers a variety of tools to help you get to the root of the problem.

Integration Details

On the Pingdom side, simply configure downtime notifications to be sent by email to a PagerDuty-provided email address.

On the PagerDuty side, we’ve created a new service type specifically for Pingdom. It accepts and parses the alert emails to create incidents, and, just as importantly, automatically resolves them should your website come back on line.
