[OT] 3rd party server monitoring services

maxwellk2
Any recommendations for 3rd party server monitoring services along the lines of site24x7.com and monitis.com? Bonus points for Mac and Linux server-side agents for CPU, RAM, disk and process reporting. Ideally in the $10-$20/mo range.

I currently have a Mac mini in my office running dejal.com/simon/, which has been great. But it seems like this type of service has become something of a commodity, testing multiple servers from multiple locations with extensive statistics and feature sets.

Thanks,
Max

P.S. I still miss squeaky.heunox.net!

Check out a broad and practical presentation by Hynek Schlawack.

Some ISPs and VM hosts provide such a service, including Anu.net.

We use New Relic for in depth server monitoring. Good overview and history
view.

I've reviewed New Relic before and they're very compelling, a little pricy but probably worth it.

My testing with site24x7.com has been promising, easy to setup macOS and Linux server-side agents to track CPU, disk and RAM usage and alert levels. However, Site24x7 is a Zoho property and I suspect they share the same tech support, which is often as helpful as talking to a bag of rocks. The one exchange I've had with them so far, a feature request, went pretty much along those lines.

Thanks,
Max

For on-server monitoring of Linux servers, Netdata is fantastic. It’s
almost hypnotizing to view realtime graphs of what the server is up to.
