Website Monitoring – Why You Need to Check More Than Uptime

He checked a few and seeing they were OK decided it was finally time to go to bed. He had started the previous morning at 4:00 am and it was now 3:00 am. He woke in the morning to see frantic messages from one of his clients with a big money site that was down.
