We have been using Monitis.com for some time now and have been very pleased with the service. We have our site checked from the US and Europe. The European link reports the occasional false failure when because of routing the site does not respond fast enough but by the time you see the email the “All OK” message is already there.

It has saved me a lot of worry and effort over the years.

Is there an easy way to monitor for Internet failures?

I would suggest looking into a monitoring service that has widely distributed monitor points.

Alternatively, could write your own and deploy it to a cloud hosting service that lets you run on multiple geographically distributed nodes (amazon aws, google compute engine, etc).

IBM i on Power Systems: For when you can't afford to be out of business!

I'm riding 100 miles (a full century) in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and awareness. You can make a tax deductible donation to my ride by visiting http://gmanesig.diabetessucks.net. My goal is $6000 but any amount is appreciated.

See where I get my donations from ... visit http://listsig.diabetessucks.net/map for an interactive map (it's a geeky thing).
