Ipwalk Launches Distributed Uptime Monitoring Services for Websites
Posted on 23-Mar-2006 22:53. | Tags Filed under: News.



Internet technology company Ipwalk has launched the beta version of GIGRIB, a free uptime monitoring service. The service uses a global, distributed network of clients to provide reliable uptime monitoring of sites selected by its community of users.

Like other distributed technologies, GIGRIB relies on its community of users sharing a small part of their bandwidth and CPU to contribute to the project. In return, GIGRIB users will be able to check uptime statistics for any site on the Internet, for free.

The initial version of the GIGRIB client supports monitoring of up to 5 sites.

According to their FAQ page, every hour of uptime checks from a user's GIGRIB client gives an additional 5 hours of uptime checks from multiple locations. This means that if a user has been running GIGRIB for some time and the client stops working for a day, the registered sites will still be monitored for 5 more days, through other clients. It is possible to have a buffer of totally 30 days with GIGRIB.

By installing the GIGRIB client on a computer, it becomes part of the global GIGRIB network of distributed clients that are used to monitor sites selected by its users. Sites are checked from multiple locations, providing accurate information.
