    Server Monitoring Tools/Services

    Hi Guys!

    Can you please tell me any free server/ services monitoring tools available.

    I would prefer third party services rather than installing something on the servers unless its the only option

    Thanks

    well yea,, im trying to monitor few servers and I like to make sure that if any of the servers or a service goes down, I get instant alert via sms/ email.

    thanks for the sites you mentioned .. they seem to do the job ... just wondering if there are any better options.

    While it's not a service, nagios (nagios.org) is an excellent tool for monitoring all of your services, but does require some place to run it.

    I went out and got a cheap but reliable VPS to run it on. It has a very small footprint, so you could run it on the small VPS's.
    No monkey business.

    We've been using www.wormly.com recently and although it's not free, it's well worth the price!

    I wish Google comes out with free monitoring, I don't think there is much money into monitoring other services beside web, at least with web monitoring they can make it so you'd have to put up a script on your website.

    I use and enjoy monitis. Their tech support has been very helpful, in fact, they even updated one of their software applications at my request.

    Cheap: monitis.com
    Free: mon.itor.us
