Website/Server monitoring

Postposted on Wed Jul 09, 2014 11:04 am

Does anyone have any website/server monitoring tools they could recommend to me? I've been using Monitance as of late for my small business set up. I'm a big fa of the SMS text message or email if something goes wrong with my website. Has anyone used Thwack or New Relic? Thanks!

I've used a few different systems but most are enterprise tools that don't SMS as standard but can email. Personally of the systems I've used down the years Nimbus is by far the best, by Nimsoft.

Find some more details here, HTH

If you can send email you can send SMS/MMS, you just need to lookup the gateway for your provider:

Pingdom covers this pretty well, with checks from many geographies. Free accounts cover the basic use case well. Tie it in with Pager Duty to handle oncall schedules/escalations. If you need more than just 'is it up', the real user monitoring can log in and perform actions. More than that and you are in the territory of Nagios/Icinga.

What about PRTG? I think it handles server/website sensoring, as well as all the fancy network stuff and graphing. They've got a free trial you can download.
