December 9th, 2004  New Feature - Full Page Snapshot

We are pleased to announce a new feature available to our current and future customers using the Website Monitoring service: Saved Snapshot of the monitored web pages. This allows customers to see exactly what the WebSitePulse system "saw" during the most recent check, so that if a problem was detected, Webmasters will be able to troubleshoot failed websites much faster and easier. The new feature increases the value of the website monitoring service because now webmasters have a reliable point of reference when investigating website failures or other functional problems.

We are pleased to announce a new feature available to our current and future customers using the Application Monitoring service: saved Snapshot of the transaction steps. This allows customers to see exactly how the WebSitePulse system "saw" the monitored web transaction during the most recent scheduled check, and if there is a problem, webmasters will be able to troubleshoot much faster and easier. The "Snapshot " feature increases the value of the application monitoring and web transaction monitoring services, because now webmasters have a reliable reference point when investigating application or other functional problems.

February 27th, 2004  New Feature - Reset Monitoring Statistics

Based on our customers' requests we have added an option called 'Reset Stats' that will reset the uptime and performance statistics for the monitored website, web server or web transaction. The new option is especially useful when you have completed the set up of a particular target and want to remove any errors from the statistics that were as a result of miss-configuration or other error not related to the operation of the monitored website or server. Another reason could be if you change web hosting providers and would like to reset the statistics we maintain. We recommend using this feature carefully, as there is no 'undo' for this request.

January 17th, 2004  Improved Test Tools

The very useful and popular Test Tools in the Member section have been upgraded. Now you can select the monitoring location from which the specific test is to be performed. The Test Tools will help you determine the problem and troubleshoot it much faster and easier. The Tools are especially useful if you perform the regular monitoring from a few monitoring locations and receive an error notification. Then you can run different specific tests from additional monitoring locations to determine if it is a local or global problem with your website, web server or hosting provider.
