How to Monitor Network Uptime


I just bought a server at a new hosting provider, and I want to make sure the network stays up. What is the best way to monitor my network? I just tried out icpld and it already reported some downtime, but I have no way of telling how reliable icpld is.

Any solutions to this?

One of the ways is to monitor your server's uptime using a third party vendor, e.g. www.alertra.com . If your server is reachable, the network is up

Use some software called nagios - if you search for that on here you'll find loads of links. It's excellent! ( I found it on this forum .. )

That would be www.nagios.org

If you have a bunch of servers in your server farm, use a minimum of two external alert/monitoring services, with testing period of say 5 minutes (i.e. services are tested every 5 minutes), for more ciritical systems you can go to 2 minutes. Some providers (including us), have leased servers worldwide and intalled softwares on them to monitor our network. A good software that I know of is GFi Server Monitor.

There are many open source / free applications to monitor your server's health.

Nagios - www.nagios.com
Big Brother - www.bb4.org
OpenNMS - www.opennms.org

To name a few.
