Linux Server Monitoring

Monitor Server CPU, Memory, IO, Disk, Network, Services and Software


Install Xitogent on your server using one command to get started!

When your business relies on Linux servers, monitoring those servers is an important aspect of the overall business performance and IT operations management process. With monitoring, you can prevent downtimes easily. Our research shows that most downtimes are predictable at least 15 minutes before the incident!

Basic Linux server troubleshooting can be done easily with simple built-in commands, especially monitoring CPU, memory, and processes. But that doesn’t quite do the job of an effective Linux server monitoring tool. A comprehensive monitoring approach requires a mature, multi-faceted, all-in-one Linux server management tool.​​​ This is especially true for businesses and companies that want to ensure the best business continuity experience for their organizations and end users.

Xitoring agent is doing better than competitors! Why?

Live Statistics

With our global view, abnormalities can be found in a matter of seconds. All necessary information is displayed, including CPU, Memory, Incidents, and Errors.

Checks Status

In some cases, even when your server's CPU and memory are working properly, the web server or ping may not be responding. This is always catchable!

Linux server monitoring overview

Server Info

Basic details also matter, we show a lot of information about your operating system, software and hardware specifications in this block, which helps to identify the server and gather the necessary information about it.

Linux Server Statistics

Server Live Statistics

CPU, Memory, Disk, and Disk IO are veritably critical factors that should always be covered on a server. However, databases, and any charge-critical apps can ruin your business!

if each of them goes grandly there will be a veritably likely interruption or outage on your web server.

Server Incidents

We all know how important it's to cover the services on a server, the more important part is how to avoid outages, and reduce the threat of business loss in case of a unforeseen outage. Each second of time-out costs businesses, thus it's pivotal to get notifications as soon as they accure, or they're likely to happen soon.

Xitoring offers a wide choice of notification channels including E-Mail, SMS, Slack, etc to notify the responsible person as soon as possible. Also, the root cause and logs are included so that you'll have to spend lower time diagnosing the issue.

linux server uptime checks

Server Uptime Monitoring

To ensure that the services like web servers and your websites are accessible to end customers, it's crucial to monitor the server from outside the box in addition to keeping an eye on its basic components like CPU, Memory, Disk, Disk IO, Network, etc. Because of this, we combined server monitoring and uptime tracking into a single offering with a single glance. All of the popular protocols, including HTTP(s), DNS, FTP, Ping, Pop3, SMTP, and IMAP, are supported by Xitoring uptime monitoring solutions.

linux load average graph

Load Average

A measure used by Linux users to monitor system resources is called load average. You can also keep an eye on how the system resources are being used. Despite being one of the most fundamental measurements of resource utilization, load average is useless unless you know what it means for the user. Xitoring helps you understanding the server load avrages, create triggers and alert for them.

CPU Usage

Every minute, Xitoring tracks your CPU consumption across all units and cores. You can configure triggers and alarms to alert you when you reach a certain threshold, or you can view historical graphs to see how you've been performing on busy days.

Memory Usage

It's crucial to keep track of memory utilization to ensure that the server's apps are all functioning properly. With Xitoring, you can configure triggers and alarms to be notified when free or used memory reaches predetermined thresholds and view historical graphs of memory utilization.


For each of your network adaptors, Xitoring generates graphs, and just like other server components, you can set up triggers to receive notifications when something is wrong.

Disk IO

Even though there are numerous low-latency drives on the market today, such as NVMe and SSDs, disk IO problems on apps are very common, thus it's crucial to make sure the server's disk IO is functioning properly. Additionally, you can configure triggers to get alarms when the expected level of disk IO is exceeded.

Disk Usage

One of the components that most people believe is never important to monitor is disk usage, yet it is. If your disk utilization exceeds 90%, you run the risk of experiencing database problems as well as other apps and services that are unable to function properly due to a lack of storage space. Xitoring offers historical disk utilization statistics, and you can also set up triggers to receive notifications when the space is getting crowded.

Xitoring always designs with simplicity, and setting up integrations can be done in a quick time. there’s no need to install additional packages or configurations, only run “xitogent integrate” on your server, and the wizard will ask you a few questions for connection.
