The modern alternative to Pingdom for developers

checkly pingdom monitoring dashboard alternative

"Checkly is incredible: It combines Pingdom, Ghost Inspector and Assertible all in the same app, and the insights are much more detailed."

Leo Lamprecht | SVP Product

Why Checkly and not Pingdom?

Checkly is built for developers and DevOps teams eager to use a modern tool stack.

Deeper Insights

Pingdom is great when you want to know if your websites are up. But it doesn’t show you whether your web app and endpoints are working correctly and performing well.

Flexible HTTP Checks

Checkly provides powerful insights and tools to customize your checks. Instead of a simple ping, you can create fully fledged configurable HTTP checks to monitor APIs.

Powerful E2E Checks

Monitor your vital click flows in a real Chrome browser. With Checkly you can use Javascript to code your checks, instead of using a restrictive scripting editor.

Convert your checks with a simple Node script


Easily migrate from Pingdom to Checkly by using our existing Pingdom-2-Checkly migration script. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
