Set up an Uptime Monitor


An uptime Monitor is one of the most basic yet crucial checks you can have for your website. RapidSpike allows you to continuously monitor individual pages on your website. Uptime performs a simple check to ensure your website is accessible and records the details of downtime events.

Add an uptime monitor to a new page

The simplest method to create a new Uptime monitor is to add a new page in Rapidspike. By default, adding a new page automatically sets up an uptime monitor.

Add an uptime monitor to an existing page

You may also want to add an uptime monitor to an existing page. There are two ways to do this:

1. If the page does not yet have an Uptime monitor configured, navigate to Settings > Websites, Pages, User Journeys & Sitemaps and find the page where you want to add the new monitor. Click Create.
