Viewing monitor results

Once you set up monitors, you can receive daily and weekly emails with a summary for all your monitors. These email notifications can be turned off in the settings. In addition, you will receive important notifications (both in-app and email) in case a monitor fails.

You can view various stats for each of the monitors.

Status Number of failed runs in the selected timeframe. A ‘Healthy’ status indicates that there were no failures in any of the runs.
Average success rate The percent of successful runs out of the total runs in the timeframe. A run is said to be successful only when all the tests passed during that run. You can also see a change in this value compared to the previous time period.
Average response time The average response time of all the requests over all the runs in milliseconds. You can also see the percentage change from the previous time period.

Monitor details page

The main timeline shows all past runs of the monitor. Each bar signifies one run of the monitor - with red indicating failing tests. The graph in blue shows the total response time (of all the requests) over time. This is a great way of measuring performance improvements when you’ve made changes to your infrastructure.
