Here are the uptime results for the Blog Ping Relay Server survey I’m carrying out for October 2006. For details of the methodology take a look at last month’s results. I am currently monitoring the following three ping services: Autopinger, Blogflux, and Ping-o-matic.
Server Uptime Results
|Blogflux||58.29%||41.64%||0.07%||12d 22h 20m|
*For example, couldn’t connect to web server, web server failed to respond in time, web server returned an invalid response etc.
**For example a server 500 error or a DNS outage.
So this month Pingomatic had an fairly impressive uptime, with Autopinger hot on its heels. Blogflux had a very dissapointing month with only 58% uptime.
Again, the main problem experienced by Blogflux was very slow performance, resulting in connection timeouts or no response once connected within 10 seconds.
And again just like last month, both Pingomatic and Autopinger had very good response times - the overall process usually taking 300 to 600 milliseconds for both of them.
