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!
