"Uptime Kuma": a self-hosted UptimeRobot alternative

Hey Guys,
not sure if this is new to any of you, but I just stumbled across Uptime Kuma:

I am now running my own uptime monitor (on my NAS via Docker) with Telegram Notifications, functionality seems about the same as UptimeRobot (from an SNO’s point of view).

That’s pretty cool, but of course if your connection or system goes down, it won’t be able to message you.

Yup, that’s the most blatant downside compared to commercial services like UptimeRobot.

Also, of the 5 ISP lines I use for my storage nodes, my home NAS is actually on the location with the least stable connection…bummer :slight_smile:

I’m going to run both UptimeRobot and Uptime Kuma in parallel for now, mostly because I’m a complete Docker noob and don’t want to rely solely on this new solution.

What do you think of hosting that tool on a “friends” server (maybe here from the community as well) and ping in both direction as a sparing partner? :innocent: @twl

That’s actually a good idea, could even be run by two different people for redundancy !
If anyone wants to give it a go I’d be more than happy to do it.

did it, recently installed.

just send over, whoever is interested, a DM with your url + port to be pinged … and all the stuff on your wish list (alert Discord, Webhook, Telegram etc.).

Same here. I personally use Gatus for alerting because I was already using it for other services. @Bivvo I can add your node(s) to my monitoring if you want :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot mate, but I’m fine with the current situation :slight_smile:

It’s a great community idea though :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
