Pingometer Integration Guide

When it comes to downtime, seconds count. Pingometer monitors your site around-the-clock to make sure it never skips a beat. If an event occurs, Pingometer will automatically create (or resolve) an incident in PagerDuty. This will take effect for all monitors in your account.
