If you have set up your own monitoring services with Amazon CloudWatch, Azure Monitor or another internal tool, we suggest you consider looking beyond the horizon. These services often provide internal web monitoring only. Perhaps they validate HTTP availability from locations outside their networks, but HTTP checks won’t give you a 360º view into the state of your services.

Specific needs are compelling but also hard to plan for. Your use case may be the reason you are searching for a monitoring provider, but the ability of your provider to adapt to your edge cases will be the reason you stay. The challenge is in discerning if a provider will be able to rise to meet your needs in unknown circumstances. In monitoring, there are some uniform needs.

It takes 50 milliseconds for visitors to decide whether to bounce from your website, that’s.05 seconds, or about half the time it takes you to blink.
