  • Location of Test: 10 Locations across Asia Pacific
  • Frequency of Testing: Every Minute across the Last 7 Days
  • Total Number of Tests = 1 x60 x24 x7 x8 = 80,640 (xMinutes xHours xDays xSites)
  • Uptime testing is confirming that the website is actually accessible to visitors
  • An example of why an outage (or downtime) can occur is scheduled maintenance of the server the website is hosted on
