We are heavily continuing the development of our browser check product thanks to your feedback!

  • 2 more server regions: 🇫🇷 Paris and 🇺🇸 New York
  • Fix update monitor name
  • Select custom check interval
  • Select a region to test the code from before saving
  • Remove Notifications tab
  • Shows "Runs every x minutes" in dashboard view
  • Shows a small browser icon whether the browser check uses chromium, webkit or firefox

Update customer details

You can now update your customer details by yourself in our billing section. Your data will be stored by Stripe and will be shown in your invoices. https://app.hyperping.io/settings/billing

Fixes & improvements

  • Fix a bug where changing tab in report view would refetch the report data and cause an unnecessary reload
  • In report view, move the Check Interval selector from the Notifications to the Settings tab
  • Add more interval choices (up to 24 hours) for regular (http, ICMP & Port) protocols
  • Revamp Project Selector (top-left)

30-second monitoring

⚡️ We are stocked to announce 30-second monitors! This simply means you will now be alerted twice faster than before, and will give you a more accurate representation of your uptime.

All new monitors will have this interval by default. You can set your current monitors in the Notifications tab of a monitor view, under the setting Ping frequency.

Fixes & improvements

  • up and down webhook events now contain a monitorUuid key to help identify your monitor. See the Doc for more details.

Browser checks Beta

Browser checks allow you to monitor critical parts of your services, using Node.js' Puppeteer and Playwright APIs to run headless browsers for end-to-end testing. Supports environment variables.

We are looking for beta users. We would love to help you code your scenarios! Contact us at leo@hyperping.io to get access.

const { webkit } = require('playwright');  // Or 'chromium' or 'firefox'

(async () => {
  const browser = await webkit.launch()
  const context = await browser.newContext()
  const page = await context.newPage()
  await page.goto(process.env.SITE_URL)
  // Assert something
  await browser.close()
})()

Read more about it in our documentation: https://hyperping.io/docs/monitoring/browser-checks

New logo!

Finally a logo we can be proud of!

Untitled

  • prettier, more playful yet professional font
  • more lively signal icon
  • H → h (uppercase H doesn't look so good)

New monitor report view 🎛

For the past week you've been able to enjoy the new monitor report view!

We've rebuilt this whole route, moving from angularjs to React, which makes it much snappier, with a new, fresh interface!

HTTP Breakdown

To the right panel, this new block breakdowns the timing of your HTTP requests over the past 24 hours

SSL information

To the right panel, if your monitor is using HTTPS and has an SSL certificate, its expiration date will appear to the right. Hyperping keeps sending emails days before and during expiry

Response time per region

You can filter up to 4 different regions to compare response time between regions

Fixes & improvements

  • New ping region: 🇸🇬 Singapore

  • The size of monitor cards, at the main view of your dashboard, have been shrank to show more monitors at once
  • Drastically reduced the bundle size. Our app.min.js file went from over 2Mb to 400kB (uncompressed), 73kB compressed
  • Replaced ping instances that were causing too many spikes (notably for Amsterdam & New York regions)
