Server Live Statistics
CPU, Memory, Disk, and Disk IO are very critical components that should be always be monitored on a server. if each of them goes high there will be a very likely interruption or outage on your webserver, database, and any mission-critical apps that can ruin your business!
We all know how important it's to monitor the services on a server, the more important part is how to avoid outages, and reduce the risk of business loss in case of a sudden outage. Each seconds of a downtime costs businesses, therefor it's crucial to get notifications as soon as they happen, or they are likely to happen soon.
Xitoring offers wide choice of notification channels including Email, SMS, Slack, etc to notify the responsible person as soon as possible. Also, the root cause and logs are included so that you will have to spend less time to diagnose the issue.
Server Uptime Monitoring
Despite monitoring the server metrics and base components including CPU, Memory, Disk, Disk IO, Network, etc it's very important to monitor the server from outside of the box to make sure that the services like web servers and your websites are accessible to end users. therefore, we have integrated server monitoring and uptime monitoring into one product, and one glance. Xitoring uptime monitoring solutions supports all major protocols including HTTP(s), DNS, FTP, Ping, Pop3, SMTP, IMAP, etc
Xitoring monitores your CPU usage for all units and all cores every minute, you can set trigger and alarms for your desired threshold, or use historical graphs to see how you've been running on busy days!
Monitoring the memory usage is critical to make sure that all applications on the server are running smoothly. Xitoring provides historical graphs for memory usage and also you can set trigger and alarm to get notified when free or used memory reach specific threshold.
Xitoring generates graphs for each of your network adaptors, and same like other server components you can create trigger to get notified when something's not working fine.
Very common performance issue on the apps is Disk IO, eventhough these days there are many low-latency drives in the market like NVMe and SSDs, it's still critical to make sure the Disk IO on the server is fine. Also, you can set up triggers to get alarms when Disk IO is high, or lower than expected.
Disk Usage is one of the components that most people thinks that it's never important to monitor, but it is. If you go higher than 90% on disk usage, you are very likely to have database issues, or other apps and services that cannot continue working because they have no room to operate on your disk. Xitoring provides historical graphs of disk usage data, and also you can create triggeres to get notification if the room is getting tight.
