Ping Monitor Create

Create a Ping Monitor for your preferred domain name/IP address and start monitoring. Configure them according to your needs, if needed.

Create a Ping Monitor with just 3 clicks

  • Click the "Create Monitor" button on the right side of the page.

  • Find the "Ping Monitoring" feature and click on the "Create Ping Monitor" button.

  • Type your preferred domain name or IP address that you want to monitor.

  • Lastly, click on "Create Ping Monitor" and your monitor is ready.

While it's just as simple as that, we have tons of configurations we can apply to our monitors to get the best monitoring experience. Most of the time, default configurations will work fine, but sometimes you may need to adjust a few to fit your specific needs.

Ping Monitor Configurations

General Settings

Domain Name or IP Address

The URL or the IP address of the website you want MonSpark to monitor.

Name of check

The monitor name is used to identify this specific monitor and is also utilized in notifications.

Check Interval

Determines the frequency of monitoring checks.


Used to categorize monitors for future grouping, you can either choose from existing tags or create new ones.

Request Settings


Determines the location from which MonSpark monitors the provided URL/IP address.


The timeout value for monitoring requests defines the duration within which the website must respond.

Confirmation Count

The confirmation count specifies the number of failed consecutive monitoring requests needed for the monitor to be marked as down.

Please keep in mind that these two configurations go hand in hand when determining how long your service needs to be unreachable for it to be considered down. For example, 30-second timeout and 3 checks mean that the monitor will be marked as down if it remains unreachable for 90 seconds.

Custom DNS

Sets the preferred DNS server for resolving the IP address of the target URL.

Packet count

Determines how many packets should be sent and waited for the response.

Notification Settings

Escalation Policies

Determines the escalation policies that will be applied to the monitor.
