    I like it. If you have multiple server locations, you could add a column Site is UP/Down to check if website is up from multiple locations.

    This is not too bad. Did you make this yourself?

    Yes, good one. The results satisfied me but I generally use Firebug to check the statistics for any website whether it my my personal or someone else. I am too much adapted myself with that. Moreover I never need to purchase it as it is an open-source facility available to everyone.

    Since, I prefer Firefox browser, hence I have just integrated the Firebug with Firefox as its add-ons and enjoying it full fledged.

    If someone here using Firefox as their preferred browser, I would like to suggest them to go for Firebug and enjoy it FREE for use with no need to pay even a single penny.

    Just Google the term - "Firebug for Firefox" and you will get the link for the add-ons. The all you need to do is to click the link and install it.

    Nice tool. Btw, you can also check the response times using host-tracker too. And it is having a largest network of nodes spread across the world.

    My company is a commercial website monitoring service provider, and they release free public tools from time to time. This one is one of the most useful in my opinion, that's why I decided to share it with DPers.
    I hope it will help make your sites faster ;)

    Cool service. I usually use gtmetrix for my performance reports. They have ySlow and Google PageSpeed Grades too. You might want to consider implementing that in your results.

    You can also have a look at the pingdom tool to check the site load.

    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

    This also gives the option to check the load from multiple locations and shows a detailed report that which file on your site is causing how much load.
