SERVER MONITORING

Virtual Internet have advanced monitoring systems to keep both our engineers and you alerted to warnings and system failures on your server(s), as well as overall and continual performance & health of your hosted environments. Should any component being monitored stop working on your Server(s), you will be alerted allowing you to act on any hardware or Operating System related issues. If you choose a proactive support option, our engineers will handle the alerts and rectify them on your behalf.

These are provided in the following ways:

  • Server availability
  • Server performance
  • Database availability
  • Packet loss
  • Email ports
  • Resource usage (memory, swap files, temp folders, processes, zombies etc)

 

Server Notifications:

The monitoring of any services running on your servers, such as web, ftp, SQL are performed continually and in the event that a particular service should stop, SMS and email notifications are sent out by the VI monitoring systems alerting you and VI engineers. This allows for quick resolution of incidents and effective service continuity.

Examples of services which can be monitored are:
  • HTTP/HTTPs web addresses
  • Databases MySQL/MS SQL
  • System load
  • ICMP (ping)
  • POP3 and SMTP
  • Telnet/SSH/RDP devices
  • TCP/IP ports
