Minor API enhancements added today

We have a couple of updates to our API.

You can obtain the current status of your checks using /api/1/results/current. This returns a list of checks that currently have an “event,” which means that the check is currently disabled or is listed as “down.” The information returned will include a timestamp when the event started. Checks not listed in the results for this call are currently “up.”

We’re also adding a couple of convenience tweaks. When you are getting a list of checks, you can add a “current” parameter in order to have any current events added to the check information. This basically mixes the information from the “current” call mentioned above in with the list of checks.

Additionally, when you are getting a single check, you can add a “lastresult” parameter to the request and get the most recent result for that check along with the check information.

All three of these changes are included in our API Reference documenation. Hopefully these minor enhancements will be of help. Feedback is welcome here or at support@nodeping.com.
