Wat is een server monitor

Monitor refers to resources like Website, Web Application, Server, Network, Application etc. that are monitored for Uptime and Performance. Each of these monitors have individual performance metrics that are closely tracked for better troubleshooting. For example, a Server Monitor has metrics like CPU, Memory, Disk Utilization, Network Utilization, Event logs and Process Metrics. Likewise a Website Monitor has performance metrics like first byte time, last byte time, DNS time, total response time and uptime status.

Some of the key facets of a monitor are listed below:

  • Monitoring a website or TCP port from the internet (outside your data center) is called a monitor.
  • You can monitor local URLs, ports, processes using the Windows or Linux Server Monitoring agents. In this case each “Server” monitored alone is considered as a monitor. You can monitor all these in that Server using the same Server Agent. You can configure this via the Server Monitoring Details page.
  • Website Monitoring products comparison.
  • A Server monitor also includes monitoring apps or services monitored using our community plugins or Nagios plugins or the own plugins you write. There is no extra charge.
  • Some Microsoft Apps supported out-of-the box are charged extra. Microsoft IIS, basic SQL Server are considered as a Basic Monitor. Microsoft Sharepoint, Office 365, Biztalk Server are licensed as an Advanced Monitor.
  • Each AWS EC2 instance or RDS instance are considered as a monitor.
  • For internet services monitoring, you can monitor from up to 8 locations. We use a predictable polling from a location logic so that graphs are uniform and intelligible. Other vendors use a round-robin methodology which gives too much spikes between polls because of latency differences due to different geographical conditions. Different sets of 8 locations can be selected for different monitors from our list of 60+ geographical locations.
  • The Premier Plan and a Custom Plan supports 16 locations and all locations respectively.
  • Licensing: Say you have to monitor two physical servers running your website and its backend. In total, you would need three basic monitors. Two monitors for viewing detailed CPU, memory, disk performance information of your critical servers and one monitor for checking the website domain itself.
