Why you need Server Monitoring
It’s all well and good to have uptime monitoring in place to let you know if a website goes down, but what if you could see the signs that this was going to happen in advance? Giving you time to address outstanding issues and prevent outages before customer reports start flowing in. This is one of the great advantages of running server monitoring alongside your standard monitoring processes, and at the same time you’ll be collecting historic data on CPU, RAM and DISK usage – as well as any running processes, making analysis a piece of cake down the line.
