Proactive Uptime Checks

Automate uptime checks and reduce mean time to resolution with Datadog.

Modern uptime checks help provide visibility into all applications and workloads, from frontend to backend. Datadog Synthetic Monitoring lets you monitor uptime in context for rapid troubleshooting and tracking of user experience metrics, like SLOs.


Run proactive uptime checks with API tests

Alert on the global performance and availability of any endpoint.
  • Validate all layers of your systems (HTTP, SSL, TCP, and DNS) from several locations
  • Easily test actions that require verification; chain HTTP requests and execute API calls sequentially with Multistep API tests
  • Conduct uptime checks and root cause analyses faster with breakdowns of network timing
  • Receive alerts for only the issues that matter and eliminate false-positive with composite alerts

Monitor critical business transactions and user journeys

Ensure that important user experiences are preserved with fully hosted, automated tests.
  • Discover front-end issues such as Javascript or network errors instantly
  • Proactively monitor Core Web Vitals scores in any environment
  • Check uptime and quickly troubleshoot performance before users notice with Datadog’s APM integration

Spend less time maintaining uptime checks and tests

Stay focused on building new features, not fixing brittle tests and uptime checks.
  • Intelligent, self-maintaining browser tests update themselves by re-identifying elements even as the UI evolves throughout development
  • Eliminate false-positives due to broken checks and create composite alerts
  • Minimize time spent updating scripted tests throughout the entire development cycle

Reduce mean time to resolution with full-stack visibility

Accelerate development with end-to-end context in a single platform and break down silos.
  • See metrics, traces, and logs in the context of uptime checks without having to switch between various platforms
  • Visualize uptime data alongside key business metrics
  • Discover issues earlier by running synthetic tests in your continuous integration workflow
