I am geting false down reports from the new site monitoring on my hub.

Not sure which plugin is monitoring site activity but I am getting reports on my various sites that the site is down when it isn't down. Wondering what might be causing that. I just went to my hub and got a message that there was an error retrieving the information. I wonder if there is a bad error report somewhere in the process.

Also noticing visits to the site from uptime.com. Could there be an issue there? Is there a way to NOT have the visits register with Google? Or is that not related to your service and I should block it?

Thanks for any help!
