We are happy to announce that Xitogent is now compatible with Rocky Linux 8. Xitoring offers free server monitoring (up to 5 servers) for Rocky Linux users.
Rocky Linux aims to function as a downstream build as CentOS had done previously, building releases after they have been added by the upstream vendor, not before. Its name was chosen as a tribute to early CentOS co-founder Rocky McGaugh!
The CentOS project announced a shift in strategy for CentOS. Whereas previously CentOS existed as a downstream build of its upstream vendor (it receives patches and updates after the upstream vendor does), it will be shifting to an upstream build (testing patches and updates before inclusion in the upstream vendor). Additionally, support for CentOS Linux 8 has been cut short, from December 31, 2029, to December 31, 2021.
By Installing Xitogent on your Rocky Linux server you can easily gather all server statistics and data without hassle, and Xitoring does the most for you. Including service discovery, creating initial checks, generating graphs, configuring initial triggers, etc.
Xitogent runs as a service on your server and automatically send your server statistics continuously to your nearest Xitoring’s Server and we use the data to generate graphs or find out if something’s wrong on your server (e.g. we’ll automatically notify you if your CPU or memory usage is above normal). It runs on a recurring interval and sends statistics to the nearest probe node, we’ll use the data to make sure everything is fine on your server and then use it to make useful graphs (Server Load, CPU Usage, Memory Usage, Disk IO, and Disk Usage).
If you’re new to Xitoring, you can register in a minute and start monitoring 5 Linux servers at no cost forever!
