View ping monitor results

Synthetic monitoring automatically records all ping monitor checks, allowing you to see the load time and response size for every run.

Use the Entity explorer and the selected ping monitor's Summary and Results pages to:

  • Select a resource to view load timing, response and request headers, and other details.
  • Use these details to find problems and diagnose performance issues.

For information on simple or scripted monitors, see View simple or scripted monitor results.

Share a result

Copy the unique URL from your browser's address bar; for example:

https://one.newrelic.com/launcher/nr1-core.explorer#launcher=7890wxyz-7c6c-4786-94bc-31d58fc91a73

You can then share this URL with anyone else who has access to your New Relic account data.

Quickly access another monitor
  1. At the top of the screen, click on the name of the current monitor to open the dropdown menu.
  2. Select from the list of recent monitors, or enter a name in the search field to search for a specific monitor.

Timing details

For some monitor types, the overall monitor check duration will be larger than the individual page request durations. This is because some browser behaviors are not measured individually but still count towards the total check time.

Examples of unmeasured behaviors include:

  • JavaScript interactions
  • Resource pre-fetching and prioritization
  • DNS pre-resolve
  • TCP pre-connect
  • Page pre-rendering
