A Copy & Paste Friendly List of Pingdom Monitoring Nodes

A nice copy and paste-able list of active Pingdom monitoring nodes is available here: https://apps.codinglog.com/pingdom/active_probes/

It uses the Pingdom API so is always up to date. For some reason Pingdom’s own list┬áis styled (form over factor) so it’s a nightmare to drop straight in to your firewall allow list. I dumped this straight in to CSF (ConfigServer Security & Firewall) and it worked a treat.

  1. I’m afraid that site is no longer available. I use the Pingdom RSS-feed, with some bash-scripting to format the output for various applications. For example (hoping the formatting won’t be mangled):

    Apache ACL:

    printf "# Pingdom servers at %s\nAllow from " "$(date +%Y-%m-%d' '%H.%M.%S)" ; \
    wget -qO- https://my.pingdom.com/probes/feed \
    | awk '/IP: / {print $2}' | awk -F';' '{print$1}' | sort -n \
    | while read ip; do \
    printf "%s " "$ip" ;
    done | sed 's/ $//' ; echo

    Varnish ACL:

    printf "# Pingdom servers at %s\n" "$(date +%Y-%m-%d' '%H.%M.%S)" ; \
    echo "acl monitoring {"; \
    wget -qO- https://www.pingdom.com/rss/probe_servers.xml \
    | grep 'IP: ' \
    | perl -p -e 's,.*IP: (.*); Host.*, "$1";,' \
    | sort -n; \
    echo "}"
