Integration of Pingdom and Flock

1.1 Pingdom

Pingdom is a website monitoring service that lets you monitor websites for uptime and performance. Pingdom allows you to test websites from your computer, iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Windows Phone, Apple Macs, Linux PCs or servers, or from a web browser on any device. You can even integrate Pingdom into your website.

1.2 Flock

Flock is a social media platform developed by Xovi Inc. It was first introduced as a beta version in May 2008. Flock is based on the Firefox browser and uses its Gecko rendering engine for its interface. It has been developed using the Mozilla Application Framework. Flock competes with Google Wave and RockMelt.

2.1 Integration of Pingdom and Flock

The integration of Pingdom and Flock can be done in two ways. The first way is through Pingdom’s API. The second way is through Flock’s built-in web server. Through both methods, data can be cplected about the user’s computer activity. This data is sent to the Flock servers in real time. However, there are issues associated with both methods.

2.2 Integration with Flock’s Built-in Web Server

Integration with Flock’s built-in web server causes some problems for the users of Pingdom. For instance, users may not be able to access Pingdom’s Check Page feature if they are using this method of integration. They also may not be able to access Pingdom’s Scanner feature because they are using this method of integration. Furthermore, users who are using this method of integration may not be able to use all of Pingdom’s features. Integration with Flock’s built-in web server is the preferred method of integration for Flock users (Jenkins. (Lancranjan. However, it does have some issues. It is not clear why these issues exist even though developers have tried to fix them. If more people were to use this mode of integration, it would be easier to identify errors in the code and correct them (Anonymous. (Lancranjan. There are also security concerns with this method of integration because it passes sensitive data about users’ computers directly to the Flock servers (Lancranjan.

2.3 Integration through Pingdom’s API

According to Jenkins, Integration through Pingdom’s API is currently the most popular form of integration between Flock and Pingdom (Jenkins. Users do not face any issues while using this type of integration between Pingdom and Flock. They can easily access all of Pingdom’s features without facing any problems (Jenkins. Furthermore, this mode of integration does not cause any problems for users who are trying to access Pingdom’s Check Page feature or Scanner feature (Jenkins. This type of integration is used by developers who are trying to integrate Pingdom with applications that already exist (Jenkins. Therefore, developers who are trying to integrate Pingdom with third party applications are using this type of integration (Jenkins. Some developers prefer to use this method of integration over the other method because they find it simpler than the other method (Jenkins. Furthermore, this method of integration does not require any changes to be made to Flock in order for it to work correctly (Jenkins. This means that developers do not need to add code to Flock in order to make it work properly when it is integrated with Pingdom (Jenkins. Developers can simply add code to their applications in order to enable Pingdom to monitor their applications (Jenkins. This allows developers to create customized sputions for their clients instead of using stock sputions provided by Pingdom (Jenkins. However, one issue that has been identified with this type of integration is that it requires the application to run in an XPCOM extension (Jenkins. This means that if the application does not use XPCOM extension then it will not be able to integrate with Flock (Jenkins. This could make life harder for developers because they will need to either rewrite their application or modify it so that it uses XPCOM extension (Jenkins. Furthermore, this type of integration could lead to increased latency in certain cases (Jenkins. This means that there could be a delay between data being sent from the application and data being received by Pingdom servers (Jenkins. Moreover, data that is sent by Pingdom could be lost during transmission because there could be a connection failure during transmission (Jenkins. However, if the problem persists then the developer can modify his application so that it sends less data at a time instead of sending all data at once (Jenkins. The developer can also use different techniques such as batching or chunking in order to reduce latency caused by data transmission (Jenkins.
