Pingometer Integration

Pingometer is a webtime monitoring tool and it provides 24/7 monitoring and checks a customer's site every 1-30 minutes to ensure that it never skips a beat. It offers HTTP, HTTPS, DNS, ICMP, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, and more. If an outage occurs, it is confirmed with multiple checks to ensure that all alerts are legitimate and actionable. This eliminates any false positives.

What does OpsGenie offers to Pingometer users?

Pingometer creates alerts when downtime occurs for a monitor. With Pingometer Integration, OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, notifying them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

OpsGenie has a specific API for Pingometer Integration, Pingometer sends alerts to OpsGenie and OpsGenie handles automatic creation of alerts.


Functionality of the integration

  • When the status of a monitor is down on Pingometer, an alert is created in OpsGenie automatically through the integration.
  • When the status of the monitor is back up on Pingometer, the related alert is closed in OpsGenie.
