Diagnostic Tools

“Why is my check failing?”

It isn’t always obvious what’s causing the failure when a check does ‘down’ and additional information about what our probes are experiencing can be helpful. For example, if your website is timing out, is it the web server, a DNS problem, or maybe packet loss on the network?

Our new diagnostic tools allow you to run several utilities on our probes and give visibility to what our probes are seeing to help you troubleshoot a failing service. These tools can be useful to narrow down where the failure is so you can get things fixed and services restored as quickly as possible.

Tools available:

  • Ping
  • Traceroute
  • MTR
  • Dig
  • Page Load (browser loading with page speed – HAR viewer)
  • Screenshot

More information about the tools and some troubleshooting advice can be found in our documentation.

You can find these tools on the “Diagnostic Tools” tab when you login to your NodePing account.  If you don’t yet have a NodePing account, you can create one and try out these tools with our 15-day, free uptime monitoring trial.

What other tools would be helpful on that page? Let us know in the comments.
