Monitor Availability Dashboard

AlertSite’s Monitor Availability dashboard shows your website availability over time. Availability means the monitor run completed successfully and the run returned a status of 0. A successful run means the monitored website is reachable, returns expected results, and does not experience errors.

To view the Monitor Availability dashboard, select Monitors > Availability from the top menu. Then select the desired monitor and the time frame.
