Our college is looking to add Canvas to our Pingdom account in order to show if Canvas is down without having to reference the Canvas status page. Has anyone else run into this issue and if so, which page would you reference?
We do not use Pingdom, but we do have another service monitoring system. I created a public course (Zenoss Service Monitoring, no authentication needed, set visibility to public in the course settings) and our system checks the page at intervals to ensure that it returns "All systems OK".
Hi Christopher Jacoby...
I have no idea what Pingdom is or what the capabilities of it are, but another option you might want to investigate is to display some kind of RSS feed somewhere where people can easily access it. I wrote a blog post last May that you might be interested in reading: Canvas Status via RSS Feed.
