Failover Health Check

Greetings Apica,

not sure if this has been posted at some stage already.

I have noticed it can happen that for some reasons check from one specific location will fail, always (IP Ban, whatsoever). In those cases a check will retry 2x (default settings) and then failover to backup location (if available) and run for the 3rd and last time. In most cases we don't see this and have one or more checks that seem to perform like this since days, perhaps weeks.

If there were some kind of health check that would alert if a check fails over for lets say more than 24 hours on a row (just a suggestion) then we could pro-actively do something about it.

Thank you & best regards,

    Hi, good idea! We plan to add functionality that will allow you to see and review any abnormal behaviour of checks. We will make sure to include this idea when working with that.
