Online Server Monitoring is a highly customizable monitoring tool that alerts you when the monitored service is down or does not work as expected. A watchdog for your web servers, email servers, hotspots, and other network services is just a primary purpose of this tool. Using our advanced system of rules you can use this tool as a notification tool whenever a third party web page is changed in a specific way. A timeout setting allows you to be alerted when your server load is too high.
Using our predefined templates you can easily set up a monitor for most common services, such as HTTP, SMTP, POP3, DNS, ICMP, IMAP, FTP, etc. Do you have a service that is not covered by our predefined templates? Or do you even maintain a server based on a non-standard protocol? You can still monitor these services with our Custom TCP/UDP Request monitors.
This tool is intended for all web owners who want to know when their hosting let them down, as well for all professionals that host their services themselves and need to quickly respond to any incident. Our notification system allows you to send all kinds of alerts (such as emails or SMS) to you, your staff, or any other interested persons or robots that you define.
