Network Pingdom reporting connectivity issues

We use two forms of monitoring, Pingdom (an external service) and our own monitoring platform (also external).

Within the last 15 minutes, we have received several Pingdom notifications reporting connectivity dropping and immediately coming back up. However, this does not correspond with our own monitoring reports.

Both Pingdom’s monitoring service and Pingdom’s FPT are showing strange results - however, other 3rd party services are reporting no issues.

At the moment, we are investigating what is going on, but it looks to be an issue with Pingdom rather than our connectivity. Enquiries are under way.
