    Monitoring Script

    Dear WHTers,

    I want to have a script which I can install on a server and I would monitor my servers.
    Do you have any idea?

    Regards

    What do you want to be monitored though? Site uptime? CPU Usage? Email? Load? Space? Bandwidth? etc. Depending on what you need, you could install certain scripts that does just 1 or 2 jobs.

    As an example you could use Vnstats to measure your bandwidth accurately.

    I just want to monitor our uptime with interval 1m or less than 1m.

    So you just want to check the server is online? There's plenty of free PHP scripts around to do that, try google. PHPStatus is pretty good, although that's per-server, since it also monitors per-server stuff like CPU.

    Monitor just your site or all the accounts your service hosts? If it's for one site I found Pingdom to be awesome but as far as all of the sites you host, no suggestions here.

    With Pingdom (free should suffice), it will check your site every 1,5,15,30 or 60 minutes. It can be set to send you emails (which is free) or send you text messages. Your first 20 text messages are free if you enable it but after that you will have to pay a few pennies for each message afterwards.

    cacti should be useful to monitor your server ressource and usage.

    I 2nd that. If you have the monitor plugin for Cacti it works well. You can get even more granular with the threshold plugin.

    If you wish to monitor uptimes and report any server downtime immediately, I believe most datacentres offer that now. WHMCS has an addon to monitor the server's uptime too (in terms of offline/online). There is also: http://rvmonitoring.com/ service, which provides SMS Report services too. For server status like server load, Status2k seems pretty useful to me.

    Seems like you are just going to monitor your server uptime. You may be wasting time and money to setup one yourself. Why not go with a provider like Hyperspin, Pingdom or Panopta who offers a turnkey solution instead?

    I would consider a hosted solution like http://www.panopta.com. If your server goes down, how do you expect it to alert you of the issue? Panopta, like other uptime monitoring systems can be setup to alert you via email or sms if an issue comes up.

    But their leg up on the competition is their voice feature. Their system will actually place a phone call to you alerting you of the downtime if you so desire.

    Try cacti with the "Monitor" plugins. Its easy to configure than nagios.
