Comparison Mode

AlertSite shows compared monitors in a table that you can sort by the response time or other columns. You can expand monitor locations and steps to compare their individual performance. The date range selector lets you switch between the data for the last 24 hours, 7 days, and 30 days. The view automatically refreshes for the latest status updates.

Monitor status by locations and steps

Monitor data is displayed in a table with these columns:

Column Description
Monitor Name The monitor name as specified in the monitor configuration.
Performance The response time over time of a monitor, its steps, or monitor runs from a specific location.
Availability Percentage of successful checks (status 0) of a monitor, its steps, or monitor runs from a specific location. Hover over the chart to see the number of checks performed during each time interval.
Status Last status (success or error) reported for a monitor, step, or location.
Type The monitor type: Web, API, or Mobile.
Response Time Last response time reported by the monitor, step, or location.
