Will Uptime Check support not only http(s)/ping types?

I want to start using Uptime Check for services, but I have some services that are working over TCP protocol and I didn’t find a way how to check random TCP ports via Uptime Check.

Hello @dmitriipaivin

I believe that this option is not available at this time.

You can create a simple script to check the status of the service or setup a monitoring service like Nagios, Zabbix, Cockpit, LibreNMS or Icinga which is essentially a fork of Nagios

Hope that this helps!

Hey @dmitriipaivin,

Unfortunately, this seems to not be included at this time. DigitalOcean Uptime supports checking uptime and latency to HTTPS and HTTP webserver endpoints, as well as to any IPv4 address via ICMP ping. So this seems to be the limitations

However that is a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps! - KFSys.
