Dedicated Server Server Metrics Monitoring goes beyond a simple ping. In addition to standard service monitoring, server metrics monitors load, hard drive space and even i/o.
Server Monitoring is included with any of our Server Support Plans
Don't end up with egg on your face when your disk drives have ran out of room. We monitor each partition and alert you when you reach 80%
Disk I/O is frequently the cause of bottlenecks in a system.
What is your CPU doing? Check I/O Wait, System, Nice and User processes, and Servicing Interrupts.
Knowing the server load is probably the 1st line of action of knowing something isn't right.
Keeping a log of uptime and downtime of your server can help identify recurring problems. Is it always at certain time each day/week/month?
Note: Server Monitoring requires Pings to be enabled and SNMP access.
