Initially, this dashboard was created to give us outside-in monitoring of applications whose infrastructure is monitored by SCOM. SCOM currently has no way to monitor applications from outside the network without deploying agents as watcher nodes, which requires a fair amount of work and associated cost. This gave us a full view of our internal and external access from multiple locations with ease and minimal cost.
Using the WebAPI tile, we query Uptime Robot for information about our web tests, which we have summarized, and create a slick Uptime Robot dashboard in SquaredUp. This is an example of querying the web test data, though the other data sets are equally easy to pull in.
