If you run a website or an API, you know how important it is to keep them up and running smoothly. You don’t want to lose customers, revenue, or reputation because of downtime, slow loading, or unexpected errors.

But how do you monitor your website and API performance effectively? How do you know if they are responsive, functioning, and delivering the expected content? How do you get alerted when something goes wrong so that you can fix it quickly?

That’s where Pulse comes in. Pulse is a reliable web monitoring tool designed to keep your website and API endpoints running smoothly. By periodically pinging your web presence, Pulse ensures it is responsive and functioning as expected. If an issue arises, Pulse mobilizes support through Netflare Pager to address the problem quickly.

In this blog post, we’ll show you some of the key features of Pulse and how it can help you maintain optimal website and API performance.

Key Features of Pulse

Pulse is more than just a simple ping tool. It offers a range of features that make it a powerful and versatile web monitoring solution. Here are some of them:

  • Deep output checks on web pages or API endpoints, ensuring content is as expected. You can specify what text or JSON data you expect to see on your web pages or API responses, and Pulse will verify that they match. This way, you can detect any content errors or discrepancies that might affect your users.
  • Response time monitoring within specified ranges. You can set the acceptable response time ranges for your web pages or API endpoints, and Pulse will alert you if they exceed them. This way, you can monitor the speed and performance of your web host and optimize it if needed.
  • False-positive reports minimized through double-checking failures. Pulse will not send you false alarms when your web pages or API endpoints fail. It will first double-check the failure before sending you a notification. This way, you can avoid unnecessary panic and confusion.
  • Customizable frequency of checks from one minute to full day. You can choose how often you want Pulse to ping your web pages or API endpoints, depending on your needs and preferences. You can also pause or resume the checks at any time.
  • Regional pinging to better represent your customer base. Pulse allows you to choose the region from which to ping your web pages or API endpoints. This way, you can monitor your website and API performance from different locations around the world and ensure they are accessible and consistent for your global audience.
  • Snapshot of your webpages recorded for historical reference. Pulse captures snapshot screenshots of your webpages every time it pings them and stores them for future reference. These screenshots let you see what went wrong and when, so you can easily debug the issue.

Using Pulse is easy and straightforward. All you need to do is:
