About Xitogent

Xitogent runs as a service on your server and automatically sends 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!

Stay tuned! more features are coming!

Xitoring now supports Rocky Linux!

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.

Xitoring Introduced Innovative Server Monitoring Platform for Those Who Are Tired of Traditional Ways of Server Monitoring

Xitoring has created SaaS server monitoring that’s simple to set-up and understand but is complete and reliable; offers free lifetime server monitoring – up to five servers

NEWARK, Del.March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Xitoring, a software development company in Delaware, has created a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that allows for a single command setup of server monitoring. Eliminating the tedious hours of setup, configuring alerts, and struggling with dashboards, Xitoring lets users set up server monitoring with a single command in their SSH. The system then sets up a dashboard, creates appropriate notifications, and provides natural language information, not simply data points that need to be interpreted. More information is available at www.xitoring.com.

Xitoring is offering lifetime server monitoring, with its complete package, for free on up to five servers. No credit card is required. Interested users can log onto www.xitoring.com and register their servers, add a single command line to the SSH, and have world-class monitoring in minutes.

“It seems like everything else in the world has gotten simpler,
except server monitoring,” said Mohammad Oslani, CEO of Xitoring.
“Typically, you spend a lot of time configuring the service, setting
up notifications, and interpreting a bunch of raw data. Xitoring is a
single command line, and we take care of the rest. It’s that simple.”

The traditional setup of monitoring on one server takes a while. Setting up 100 servers is a full-time job. With Xitoring it can all be done in minutes. Copy a single command line into your SSH, and you’re done. Xitoring is designed to do all the rest for you. Monitoring all the servers on your network, notifications of issues, and a simple, easy-to-read dashboard that shows performance charts on every server are what make Xitoring a powerhouse service that no firm should be without.

With its exclusive concept in server monitoring, Xitoring is able to track servers anywhere on Earth. The team setup function allows for messages to be delivered to an entire group, as opposed to a single person. Spreading the messages around to many people, particularly in different time zones and countries, allows a company to have 24-hour responsiveness to server issues.

“Metric and uptime monitoring, auto-discovery, automated triggers,
and server overviews, it’s all built into Xitoring,” Oslani said.
“Incident reports are created to describe the issues in plain English.
There are even automated alerts that let the right people know
when a server is having issues. This is the fastest, most effective
way to monitor your servers’ performance without the hassle of
weeks of setup.”

Xitoring is an innovative monitoring platform (SaaS) for servers. They bring data from servers using an agent (Xitogent) to make sure the servers are operating well, avoid downtime and performance issues, allowing companies to increase customer satisfaction. Xitoring was introduced in 2020 to revolutionize the server monitoring industry for those who are tired of cumbersome, traditional ways and are looking forward to automation in this vital part of their jobs.

Xitoring Launched!

Hello,

We’re proud to introduce our initial release of Xitoring, a Software as a Service, cloud based, and innovative Server Monitoring platform for who those are tired of traditional ways of Server monitoring.Our service is backed by cutting-edge technologies and using re-innovated software models that makes the whole process for the users much easier and faster.

You may ask yourself, there are already so many monitoring companies out there, why there should be a new one in 2021? well, we have been a customer of all those companies and they never deliver what we expected, the ease of use, the ease of installation, and the ease of configuration! we had to repeat the whole process again and again to start monitoring one of our servers. Xitoring is founded by experienced system administrators and the reason for the foundation is that it didn’t exist, so we had to use several apps to monitor our servers and always waste time. That’s why we spent years building this application, and we delivered very late, but it’s bullet-proof, because we made everything from scratch in a new, easy, and practical way.

Well, you already figured out the problem with other companies. Yes! the complexity of process for the user to add a new server to the monitoring system and configure checks, triggers, and alerts from scratch for each. Then, what’s our solution?

  • We let you add servers using one command, you may add hundreds of servers using Ansible or similar tools
  • Xitoring automatically create common triggers for Checks (HTTP, DNS, FTP, etc.) and metrics (CPU, Memory, etc.)
  • We provide the exact reason, not data, and you will know why you’re having issues.

You can discover all Xitoring features!
