I set up options using Webmin (ping, http) that monitor the servers
remotely. I also have the servers monitoring each other and they will
email me if they notice something wrong.
> I use a few shell accounts from around the place to check our firewall
> here. 'GREX' (cyberspace.org) will give you a free account. For a small
> fee they will let you run a bot on their server too.
> There are also a few companys like www.alertsite.com that will remotly
> keep tabs on your server for you.
> | We are having sporadic reports of our web server not responding. |
> | Could be DNS, could be network, could be firewalls,
> | could be the server itself.
> | I need a quick tool to set up monitoring,
> | locally and from the sites that are having the problem.
> | I'd need to check DNS, ping, and a page get,
> | preferably direct and through several remote proxies.
> | What's quick to set up, can call various scripts to check different
> | and comes with a good cookbook of already written scripts.
> | eg: I'd need a GET script that effectively does a shift-reload
> | against the remote proxy, or I'll only be testing the proxy.
