In Silktide, an uptime monitor is an automated check of a single webpage.
The webpage is downloaded regularly (normally every 5 minutes) and tested to make sure it is working correctly. If the webpage is not working, an alert is sent to appropriate members of your team.
Uptime monitors also record the amount of time the page took to load.
You can use uptime monitors to identify if critical parts of your website are available and responding quickly enough.
