  • Looks good. It is cheap and seems to be easy to use. But its functionality is not very wide. For me leaders in this sphere are http://dotcom-monitor.com and http://monitr.us

  • Nice, need a free version though. Also way too close to basecamp’s ui

  • Thanks for the feedback chaps. Much appreciated.

    @Den. We’re adding functionality all the time (Eg, yesterday we rolled out checking for HTTP latency) and we’re certainly focused on giving Sentinel all the tools and features that a user would expect. Is there a specific bunch of features that you would like to see? Let me know :)

    @Jon We certainly took inspiration from some of the basecamp UI elements because they did such a fantastic job. We also took inspiration from Campaign Monitor, Apple, jQuery UI and a way too many cups of coffee 😉 We are thinking about rolling out a free version and that may become a reality over the next few months. What would you expect to see in a free version?
