About Pingdom

You can’t fix what you’re not aware of, and you need to find out about website issues quickly because if your customers find out first, it’s game over. For today’s web-scale application environments, it’s not just about the web application’s availability; it’s about the performance and resulting end user’s experience. You need to know right down to the transaction level if your application is available and performing as designed. You need to monitor user interactions and business transactions to provide actionable insights because when availability and performance issues arise, they need to be fixed quickly—before the customer feels the impact.


Key benefits of Pingdom

Pingdom offers powerful and incredibly easy-to-understand uptime and performance monitoring for your websites. With Pingdom, you can:

• Ensure your web application and its key transactions are up and working as designed for all your users, no matter where they are or how they access the
application.

• Know your web application is performing the way it was designed to with an end-to-end view of the interconnected elements supporting it.

• Know who your real visitors are and how your web application is performing for them. Test your web app in the real world, not the ideal conditions of the
data center.

• Be confident your performance monitoring tool can scale with your business technically and cost-effectively.

My overall experience is average, I don't feel comfortable using this tool. But yes, sometimes clients ask me to improve the website performance with a special focus on the Pingdom testing tool. That time I use Pingdom to make the client happy. I think this tool needs to improve UI/UX more, people like me will start loving this tool again.

Pros

It's easy to use, has a good performance board that shows what grade the site got, its loading time, page size etc that helps to get a clear concept about website performance. Pingdom has a good functionality of downloading website reports har.json file. It's a very unique thing, I didn't get anything like this in other speed testing tools. Like other testing tools, Pingdom also shows how to improve the speed score of a website, this is a very important thing because every testing tool has its own algorithm.

Cons

Like the other speed testing tool, Pingdom works similarly, there are no different and unique things on it that will bring me always to use this software. Even this tool is so hard, they show a lot of obstacles that often does not work as a reason for the website slow loading. There is some user experience problem in this tool. For example, after completing the scan, it not redirects me to the result section. Results show below of the hero section, no animation, no redirection nothing! It should perfectly represent the scan results.

It pings our phones, emails, collaboration tools and we rarely have issues with it. I recommend for medium and large enterprise monitoring cross-continent.

Pros

The global ping. When attempting to ping a certain host, it tries from multiple locations around the world and helps us isolate whether the issue is with a local provider or global.

Cons

Page loading times. In rare cases, when no network fault is preventing access, page starts to load, then stops, and after this refreshes to a usable state. Also, the Root Cause per host sometimes tends to take a longer period for generation, which can lead to data insufficiency.

I started out using the free Pingdom website speed test tool before signing up to use the full kit of Pingdom tools. I use Pingdom to monitor website performance and uptime.

Pros

It works with my favorite content management system.
Easy to set up compared to some web performance tracking tools.
There is a WordPress plugin to add the Pingdom code snippet which may be useful for less technical users.

Cons

If you are using other tools similar to Pingdom you may need to choose between them and Pingdom to avoid having too many code snippets installed which could reduce website performance.
