Site Uptime Service - A few questions

March 15, 2014 1.2k views
Hi, I plan on using Digital Ocean for my site uptime monitoring service I am coding using PHP and cURL. I will ping sites every 15 minutes for free and every 5 minutes for a fee. I need to run the check from Europe, North America, and Asia, so I will need 3 servers. Is this allowed on DigitalOcean, can the servers handle it, and is it possible? - James

Sure. Just make sure you make a ticket out of these servers to notify administration beforehand so your servers will be marked as "service monitors", in some cases servers have gone down because of automatic abuse reporting caused by pinging / probing.


If we have 500 pings every 5min, can the basic plan handle that?
