Xitogent is a python-based and open-source application that is the core of our innovation, Xitogent can collect data from your servers in an efficient way. it’s very lightweight, easy to install, and configurable.
We are always developing Xitogent to improve and add features, At this time Xitogent has been tested on all major Linux Distros which are the most used OSes in the market.
We collect the below data which is necessary for monitoring a Server.
- CPU Information and Usage
- Memory Information and Usage
- Storage Information and Usage
- List of Software and Services running
- Docker Information and Containers (if installed and running)
- Network Statistics via Netstat (if installed and running)
You can see a sample of data we collect from your server here.
We provide customizable graphs for all data, and also you will be able to set triggers and alerts for each segment.
You can easily install Xitogent and add your server to your Xitoring app in a matter of seconds, Yes, that’s one of our strong points. you just need to run one command in your server’s terminal, Our installer will install Xitogent and it’s dependencies, Checks and Triggers will be configured automatically and we’ll send you an email notification upon the server is successfully added to the Xitoring app, We designed everything to be simple and as fast as possible.

The 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).
At first, our Bash Installer will help you installing the Agent with all dependencies automatically and set up it on your server as a Service. You can always update, remove, or stop it.
The Agent 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).
We have implemented strong security standards both within the product and outside with operational processes, using industry standards that will protect your data today and into the future.
All data transported from your server are secured with TLS 1.2 or above and we encrypt all data using AES-256.
What data will you be collecting from Servers?
We only collect data that is necessary for generating Server Graphs and Server Statistics including CPU Usage, Server Load, Memory Usage, Disk IO, Disk Usage, Top processes, Installed Common Softwares, and general details including Hostname and IP Addresses.
