    Self-Hosted "Pingdom" app or script?

    Hey guys and gals...

    Looking to see if anyone knows of a good app that you can setup and install yourself, that will monitor uptime of sites and notify you if they are down. Pretty straight forward; akin to a self-hosted Pingdom.

    I've found some online but they either haven't been worked on in years (dev.'s stopped working on them) or they don't send out email(s) when there's a status change.

    Any thoughts?

    Edit: I have several sites that I want to manage and Pingdom / others are pricey. I have the ability to host VM's myself and would like to run/control my own script if possible. FYI... just incase anyone asks.

    Donno about that, but probably easier to use Even the free account is for unlimited domains. Upgraded account isn't too expensive either.

    Google is your friend.

    There are small scripts that are easy to setup, will check http/port statuses every few minutes, and send an email to as many addresses as you need once the service is down.

    The best option, getting a small account elsewhere and setting this up to monitor all your services.

    Put one together yourself, it really doesn't take that long.
    Use php/mysql, fsockopen, shouldn't be terribly hard to put something together.

    For alerts, use sms (via email), pushover, textnow, textfree / pinger (I recommend textfree, too many bugs with Pinger right now), even email (use phpmailer).

    If you're feeling spry, you can also integrate Pear - http2 and Pear - Net_DNS2

    I've got a system put together that I've been using the past few years, integrated tightly with WHMCS, works like a champ. Always modifying it of course, but it works.

    Create your own, it's going to be the best solution for you
