You've built your service infrastructure and it's running fine, right? But how do you know?
Do you simply wait till users complain about a problem and then track down the cause?
Wouldn't it be better to actively interrogate your servers vital statistics and alert you when something's "out of whack"?
We can set up monitoring for any device be it Windows, Linux, Network appliances; anything connected to your network.
Nagios is the worlds best open source monitoring platform. It's lightweight, powerful and free.
Nagios can monitor and alert on almost anything, for example:
- CPU usage/load
- Memory usage
- Disk usage
- Network traffic volume
- Processes (ie. is "abc.exe" running?")
- Network services (ie. is TCP/25 answering connections?)
- Database statistics
- And much more...
Once a problem is detected, Nagios can alert the appropriate people in a number of ways and handle escalations should the problem remain unresolved.
Having a historical record of the state of your servers can be an invaluable tool when diagnosing a problem. Cacti automates the collection and display of all your equipments vital statistics.
Cacti can graph anything that can be expressed as a number, for example:
- Health statistics (CPU, Memory, Disk, Netowrk usage)
- Network statistics (Errors, Latency)
- Number of processes
- Database statistics (Reads, Writes, DB Size, etc.)
- Service statistics (eg. DNS queries per second)
- And much more...
Cacti keeps a rolling database of data for over 1 year, making trend analysis a breeze.
