You can now set a soft limit on the response times for API checks. Using a handy slider, you can set when a check is "just" degraded and when a check should be considered failing due to extreme latency.
Learn more about soft limits in our docs
Note: You can still set a hard assertion on the response time if you want.
Checkly now also sends out degraded alerts through email, Slack etc.
However, we initially turned the new degraded alerts off when rolling out this feature to not trigger any extra alerts for users whose checks might be in the degraded zone.
To enable degraded alerts, just head over to your alert channel settings and check the box! More info in the docs
