UptimeRobot and HetrixTools are great resources for monitoring uptime.

hello

i have account with mrtoolbox , pingdom serviceuptime.com and serviceuptime.com ( free accounts ).
i use them to monitor 4 domains with same hosting.
Strange to say, i get diferent monitor performances depending on the service used to monitor.

thanks for sharing your prefered service.

The answer will be based on your demand or things that you need to monitor and the resources you have to monitor them. As long as you run your own / rented infra with multiple devices / servers, its always good to configure an inhouse monitoring system...something like nagios, zabbix, icinga and there are many more both opensource and paid. Its not just for monitoing uptime, but other services / stats based on your demand and the you want. if its just few domains you are bothered only about the web uptime, you can depend on free online tools like pingdom, uptimerobot, etc or upgrade to their paid service if you need more aggressive level of checks / alerts.

indeed.
only concern is uptime due to hosting shift recently. No public record thus decided to monitor myself ( supports send me a message that server was up "
-----------------------------
~root@jupiter-fl [~]# hostname
jupiter-fl.thewebhostserver.com
root@jupiter-fl [~]# uptime
21:59:07 up 148 days, 4:28, 1 user, load average: 6.57, 6.66, 8.98
root@jupiter-fl [~]#
-----------------------------).

Most free services check with interval of 05 minutes. Hetrix and Mrtoolbox allows for a check every minute, and are those that keep sending me downtime messages of 1 or 2 minutes. Mrtoolbox send an alert with description "HTTP Over Threshold "
serviceuptime.com says
Year Total checks Outages Failed checks Uptime
2017 3035 3 3 99.901 %

Just tought it was strange. As Kieran2001 says, maybe some bug or protection blocking same IP to acess website ?

Thats just confusing....are the uptimes mentioned in the emai alert is actually HTTP [ aka website ] uptime or you monitor ping?

1. If its HTTP you are monitoring, the "uptime'" command shows server uptime not HTTP uptime.

3. If you monitor ping and you get server outage alerts, even if the server is up...that means mostly a temporary network issue between your monitor server and your server.

Also make sure to whitelist the monitor IP address on your server if you know the source IP address/block.

I usually use UptimeRobot.com, but CloudFlare bugs can cause HTTP Monitors to fail.

I have used a few including Pingdom and Status Cake. I was a Pingdom user for many years until they changed their pricing models.
For the most part, I prefer Uptime Robot and Uptime Doctor and use both of them.

There are number of tools available to monitor the uptime and other things related to server. Nagios is the best tool which will monitor the server load, uptime, exim queue, SQL processes, get-post requests on the server that is it will cover all the things on the server.

Try using it, it is best.

I am currently using the functionality offered by Pingdom. But I would like to try something different.
