Network and Service Monitoring
Do you know that your website and email services are operating correctly? How about that your servers are not overloaded, or the hard drives failed? Using the same system we use to monitor our own services, our Network and Service Monitoring service can automatically keep an eye on them for you and notify you immediately in the event of any issue. Supporting both network and agent based probe types, the service is able to monitor virtually any aspect of your system's availability and performance.
The network based probes monitor your system by attempting to connect to it via the Internet and providing alerts if this cannot be done. Examples of network based probes include monitoring web and email servers, SSH and RDP terminal servers, DNS servers, etc. For some of the network based probes, such as the web and DNS server probes, the system is also able to check the contents of the reply to ensure things are working correctly.
The agent based probes are able to monitor services on your system that are not available over the Internet, such as database servers, and also other system performance metrics such as CPU and RAM utilisation, free disk space and network throughput.
A very comprehensive monitoring solution can be put in place using a combination of network and agent based checks.
