For the month of October, we’ve added three new checkpoint locations for a total of 212, and we’ve updated the IP addresses of three more checkpoints. We keep adding new checkpoints because you need to monitor your websites and web services from as close to your users’ locations as you can get. A few randomly placed monitoring locations or just monitoring from the cloud (who’s users are in the cloud anyway?) doesn’t cut it. To maintain a quality network, we need to keep the checkpoint network updated, and we need to keep growing our network to fit your changing user base.
We are making the changes right now, and we should have them all done within the week. So if you’ve whitelisted our checkpoints, make sure you update your list.
Our checkpoint network is growing. We’ve added three new checkpoints:
Bosnia and Herzegovina
We’ve located a new checkpoint in the city of Novi Travnik (IP address: 188.8.131.52). Bosnia and Herzegovina has a population of 3.5 million with 2.8 million of those people using the Internet regularly. The country’s Internet speed ranks 86th in the world with average speeds of 7.53 MBPS.
Changing IP addresses
Periodically we need to change IP addresses on existing checkpoints. For the month of October, we are changing the following checkpoints:
The Salzburg checkpoint changes from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11
The Cairo checkpoint changes from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124
- United States
The Clifton, New Jersey checkpoint changes from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52
Get the full list
You can always view the full list of checkpoints on the Uptrends website, where you can get the updated list along with their IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
You can also get the list in JSON and XML format using PowerShell and/or CURL. Learn more in our Knowledge Base.
