    One host and 5 services wen monitors on the free tier? How generous.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

  • I switched over to HetrixTools and am very pleasantly surprised. I believe it has a better overall feel for my needs and I was able to get in during the Christmas double free plan which totally makes it worth it for me.

    I still have a soft side for Nixstats since it was one of the first I used and I saw it grow from a very unrefined service to a powerful monitoring service. I wish them all the best in their enterprise/professional plan offerings!

  • $1.19/mo to monitor an additional server that costs $3/mo i guess...

    Why are we still allowing bypassing AUP/TOS (Netflix) requests? We're one thread pull away from being HF.

    Thats the price you pay, for using a 1 liner to monitor your server instead of setting stuff up like LibreNMS.

  • Don't assume things about people as I'm probably one of the biggest promoters of LibreNMS on here.

    I've read mixed reviews here about StatusCake, though I've never used them myself.

    @NodePing participates here...been using them for a long time without issues, but they're external monitoring only (not telling you what's going on inside your box, just how it looks from outside).

    Can't say either way, though I know the owners. I've got ~600 domains.servers being monitored, or rather, I'm collecting data and then will monitor more closely.

  • vovlervovler Member

    Ditching nixstats, good thing I won $100 on Hetrixtools.

  • lion said: complains that he now wants some money for his work

    No. The point is the pricing will turn a beta turned production service back into non-production or encourage somebody to compete. My $3/mo Scaleway LibreNMS install is good enough at this point.

  • @lion said: I like how everyone here used and enjoyed nixstats while it was free but complains that he now wants some money for his work

    It's been solid for me and I wouldn't mind paying what he wants. Its cheaper than a lot of other monitoring out there.

    Definitely in the same camp, but all my monitoring is for non-critical applications and isn't a necessity. A free service for me is better for my needs.

  • Nope, not at that price. $2/mo for our current founders plan would have been fine.

    Cheap vps or Scaleway with LibreNMS now.

    The pricing doesn't seem bad to me. The only feedback I would have on the plan is to offer a better explanation of 30 days data retention vs 2 years historical data and how they differ.

    Using a no-SLA service to monitor your services is a great plan. Right up there with self-dentistry.

    I can one up that one. What about using your DNS server on a couple bucks per year mega VPS? ...here's the foundation for the next DNS Made Easy competitor.. just along side with the next "facebook" and under the next "Google".

  • MeMyselfandLinux said: Do they need to listen common port?

    Change snmpd port to whatever is open. Not sure if your NAT VPS will do open UDP ports.

    Outgoing should be fine, but anything that needs to initiate, well, that's probably not going to end up great.

  • raindog308 said: but they're external monitoring only

    We do have an SNMP check for metrics (pull at 1 min interval) and there are a lot of packages REST exposed metrics we can do with our HTTP Parse check. No agent-based check yet.

    I would like to say that nixstats looks like a solid product and I hope it's able to keep the lights on with that great pricing.

    SNMP over UDP + NAT VPS works without any issues.

    It's just doesn't feels well. I mean dashboard is not as much as touched as nixstats. I also notice too many false alerts a day. Nixstats has a lot more features in my opinion

    From false positives, I remember just before NixStats there was cloudstats.me that I used for a few months but it used to have many false alarms. I think the dev was on LET as well.

    Don't know if they improved or not.

  • vfusevfuse Member, Provider

    I tried to make a price that would work for most people. I understand that it's too much for some, that's why we have the Free plan.

    We just released an update with RabbitMQ, Redis as well as Exim mail queue monitoring. If there's anything else you're interested in monitoring let me know. Our system is set up to monitor anything you push to our API. We've had some interesting requests already, printer ink level monitoring for example.

    We also have a whitelabeled WHMCS reseller module (monitoring.yourcompany.com), let me know if you're interested in giving it a try.

  • Nixstats is pretty awesome. In the past 6-7 months I have been using it, I can easily see the effort put in by @vfuse to make the product more awesome (particularly love the Weekly stats email).

    For now, I haven't upgraded as all I was monitoring are my Idle VPSes and hardly used blogs. If this changes, I would gladly pay for the upgrade.

    PS: Wondering how Vincent came up with the 6.95 number (LET influenced?)

    Are you looking for some textual fun?

    That's only outgoing, though, right? Like I said, any ping-back monitors will probably have issues/need ports altered/et al.

    I think all those guys running OpenVPN on their NAT Boxes connect via UDP by default, don't they?

    Nixstats is very helpful, unfortunately I can't pay $7/m to monitor a total of $6/m servers. I'll stay with HetrixTools and Nodequery :D

    I wish the best to the people of Nixstats :)

    This is not really a bug, we're well aware that you're still having those features.

    We noticed some users still needed a couple of days to activate their subscription so we'll still allow this for the next couple days.

    I'm glad I made you good about yourself tho ;)

    Be glad to explain it to you in a PM though, as some parts of the interface allows monitoring and others (main page) don't.

    Since I already PM'ed vfuse about it it was, apparently.. but thanks for your input :)

    And what I "found" was different than @Sven above, but @vfuse explained it nicely on how he intends to have it fixed so all is well.

  • vfusevfuse Member, Provider

    Again on the dashboard we've implemented the option to check if a server/monitor is "active", if it's not it will display a message asking to upgrade.

    On the API we've not implemented this yet since a couple of users have asked for a couple extra days to upgrade their subscriptions. So the API does not (yet) check if a server is active/disabled, once that's enabled you won't see any of the data anymore since it won't be stored anymore.

    We just didn't want to leave anyone in the dark in the meantime :)
