Status maps are now powered by jVectorMap

With a little CSS and static image, we rolled our own mapping solution. It was half-baked and only meant to be a temporary solution.

The legacy maps are now long gone and we replaced them with the maginificant jVectorMap! Browser compatibility was a primary concern and these maps support everything all the way back to IE 6.0.

The shiny new maps:

Location information appears on hover. We will be adding more meaningful data here in the future.

How to automate your status page with Pingdom

Already use Pingdom for network monitoring? You’re in luck! Simply link your Pingdom alerts to your components for automatic status updates.

How it works

Pingdom sends an email alert when one of your monitoring checks fails. Our backend parses this message and then toggles the component’s status based on the detected values.

  • ‘DOWN’ sets a component to ‘Full outage’
  • ‘UP’ sets a component to ‘Operational’

Configure your components for Pingdom automation

  1. Login to the control panel and navigate to integrations. Copy the email hook address from the component you’re linking right now.



2. Next login to your Pingdom account and add a new contact using the email address you copied in the previous step.



3. Edit the individual monitoring check at Pingdom and enable alerts to be sent to the new contact you just created.

Repeat these steps for each component that you want linked to a Pingdom check.

That’s it! Now your status page will stay updated automatically based on Pingdom events.
