Server monitoring tool

samratfktsamratfkt Member

Is there any self-hosted/ Open source tool available where I can monitor all usage and downtime live?

or maybe paid? but it should very cheap.

    uptime kuma looks fine, not for enterprise use tho.

    Hetrixtools is enough, it can monitor status and system usage.

    Just monitor status, there is also Betterstack, and UptimeKuma is recommended for self-hosted.

    I think it cant give us server resource details.

    Yes, Hetrixtools is fine, I guess. Are you using how is the performance? the free plan is enough?

    Hetrix best, but checkout Nezha Monitoring as well.

  • oplinkoplink Member, Patron Provider

    uptimerobot or Hetrix work good

  • satoriksatorik Member

    Prometheus + node_exporter + Grafana

  • faleddofaleddo Member

    I use zabbix. Can run in arm too.

  • @oplink said: uptimerobot

    I don't think uptimerobot got system internal monitor

    This is enough for most people.
    If it is an enterprise or important business, paying can bring more accurate results.

    Usage?

    If you want to monitor stuff accessible via SNMP (CPU,disk,network over time), I'd recommend Observium CE, it's free, but some have issues with the devs, thus there's a fork called LibreNMS, but I still prefer the original.

    There are many monitoring suites that rely on a hosted agent, but I get comfort from the simplicity and security of plain SNMP.

    Any easy monitoring SaaS where I can two several stages of requests?

    Like auth against one endpoint, perform another request using the bearer token, and alert if any stage of this fails?

  • Zabbix is my go to solution. It has a bit of a learning curve to get started, but it's worth the effort as it runs entirely on your own server(s)

    So I can monitor all my servers from one place?

    Usage means, memory usage, CPU usage, Disk Usage etc.

    Yes. Not only system performance, but also docker stats, databases stats, nextcloud stats, etc. Zabbix have lot of monitoring integration.

    I used to use mrtg and cacti. Nowadays, I am mostly using prometheus (with grafana for visualization).

    I use Hetrixtools (cloud) and Netdata (selfhosted)

    Netdata is confusing at first, is it possible to have a central dashboard for all servers that is self hosted, or do I have to use their cloud option?

    Hetrixtools is fine. Also nixstats use to be now it is sold to webpros and named 360monitoring.com, still worth money you pay.

    What a downgrade in name though

    Nixstats > 360monitoring

    Of course. You have a Zabbix server that monitors all your servers, and then you install an agent on each server that you want to monitor.

    The agent weighs nothing, (I run it on 256MB slices with no issues), and I'm monitoring 35 "servers" from a Zabbix server running on a VPS with 1 core and 2GB of RAM

    I also have it connected to an email server so it sends me notifications for things I need to worry about, and it has graphs so you can see the uptime, and resource usage, (which might save you money if you've over-provisioned)

    UptimeRobot is better, we are using it to monitor all our servers :)

  • siemenssiemens Member

    Just wait for the first user to email you when it's down

    Prometheus BlackBox + Grafana is a good combo :)

  • hsrhsr Member

    Prometheus + Grafana or Zabbix

    Netweak is pretty good (and cheap!) if you need server resource monitoring. UptimeKuma is a good open source alternative.

    I think 360monitoring is a good name. 360 as in it monitors everything on the server.
