How the tests work

We send an HTTP GET from multiple datacenter regions to your application using its Cloud 66 DNS name (e.g.your-app-name.c66.me).

If your application redirects traffic using HTTP Redirect, we will follow the redirections up to 3 times. Your application should respond to the call within 1 second.

The datacenter regions that we check from are:

This testing uses our open source project, Watchman, a light, multi-instance service in different geographical locations that provides a full picture of a web endpoint’s general health and global accessibility.
