Pingometer vs StillAlive: What are the differences?

What is Pingometer? Uptime monitoring with unlimited checks, multiple locations, and smart alerts. When it comes to downtime, seconds count. We monitor your site around-the-clock to make sure it never skips a beat. We offer HTTP, HTTPS, RUM, DNS, ICMP, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, TCP, UDP, and Transaction monitors.

What is StillAlive? A simple, easy to implement way to check that your website is up, and also that it's still working properly. Using our stories feature, you can test many different features of your live, production website. It could be you need to find out if logins are working. Whatever it is, StillAlive can (or will) be able to test it.

Pingometer and StillAlive can be primarily classified as "Website Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Pingometer are:

  • 24/7 Coverage
  • Intelligent Monitors (HTTP/S,RUM, DNS, ICMP (Ping), IMAP, POP3, SMTP, TCP, UDP, and Transaction
  • 12+ Locations

On the other hand, StillAlive provides the following key features:

  • Nothing to install- All you need to do is create a script that mimics the behaviour path you want to have us test.
  • Make sure your site works as expected- StillAlive doesn't just ping your website to see if it is online. It mimics the actual behaviour of your users, viewing your site as your users would and navigating around doing real stuff. So don't just make sure your website is responding with a 200 OK, make sure your shopping cart works, or that users can log in.
  • High Availability- StillAlive helps you make sure your application is online, 24x7.
Decisions about Pingometer and StillAlive

We needed a monitoring tool to track application uptime, response time and provide a public status page.

After looking at several options including the big ones like Pingdom and Pingometer, we went with updown.io. Their pricing model allowed us to pay for exactly what we needed (number of endpoints and frequency) without selling us anything we weren't going to use.

Their interface is easy to use, service has been rock solid and their public status pages look great.
