Upptime – uptime monitor and status page

Upptime is a GitHub-powered uptime monitor and status page.

It doesn’t require a server as it’s all powered by GitHub. You can also run a self-hosted GitHub or GitLab Runner with your own resources. GitLab [Runner] also runs tasks on cron schedules.

It is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Monitor uptime every 5 minutes – using GitHub Actions, monitor unlimited webpages every 5 minutes, and store version-controlled response time stats. Record the response time once per day and commit it to git history. This way, you can graph long-term trends in your websites’ response times by going through git commit history. These graphs are generated once every day, also using schedulers.
  • GitHub Issues-powered incident reports – when a specified endpoint goes down, Upptime automatically opens a new issue in your GitHub repository. You can use this issue to add more information about the outage, such as whether you are investigating, what caused the downtime, etc. You can also choose to automatically assign certain members from your team to the issue and send notifications to connected services like Slack and Telegram. There are custom webhooks and more.
  • Modern – get a sleek and beautiful status page powered by a modern Svelte static site with outage history and long-term trend charts. This website will show users your websites’ live status, incident history, and response time graphs. The website is always up-to-date as it uses the GitHub API to fetch data in real-time, and is built using Svelte and Sapper. You can customize the logo, copy, and more to make it your own.
