WUMP (Website Uptime Monitor Program), is a very useful opensource application designed to check the status of multiple websites at a set interval. Through this app it becomes easier for webmaster to automatically monitor several websites for outages.

WUMP is the resulting solution to check down server problems and consistently monitor the websites. If the website goes down due to some server issues, it automatically notifies you via email. It has three functions: AutoWump (windows service to control automated WUMping), SledgeHammer (performs actual functionality) and wump (for customizing settings, to start and stop AutoWump and running manual tests).

To start monitoring website you need to add a simple HTML file (wump.html) in the root folder of your website, the content of which can be found on the developer’s page and can be seen in the screenshot below.
