CloudStats.me – Monitors Your Linux Servers and Websites from the Cloud
CloudStats.me is a new linux server monitoring tool which is very easy to use yet capable of providing most vital information about your server. CloudStats was developed with simplicity in mind. Most existing server monitoring tools are either quite expensive or have a tedious installation procedure. In contrast, once you sign up for a CloudStats account, you will be asked to run only 1 command on your server using SSH command line tool. That command will install the monitoring Agent on your server which will start sending statistics to your CloudStats account.
From now on, no matter where you are – you can always login to your CloudStats account using a home PC or a mobile phone and see full information about your server, including CPU, Disk, RAM, Network usage etc. In addition, CloudStats.me can monitor Apache, DNS, MySQL, Mail, FTP and other services on your server. Once your server or a service goes down, you will receive an Alert via an email. Alternatively, you can receive alerts via Skype chat message. This makes monitoring your server a stress-free job whereas you can focus on your project and be sure that you will know immediately if something happens to your server.
The Email and Skype alerts are fully configurable so that you can define when you receive them. For example, you can configure to be notified when your free Disk Space is very low, or when RAM Usage on your server is too high. This would indicate that you need to login to your server and investigate or contact your server technical support team for them to check this for you. It is vital to know what is happening inside your server to make sure the project that you are working on is successful.
Whether you are running your server on CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu or Fedora, CloudStats.me is the best choice for monitoring it. What’s more, CloudStats can even monitor your Windows-based servers, which makes it a swiss-knife like tool for server monitoring.
