How Monitor Scout Proceeds with Website Monitoring?

If you are running an online business, then your top priority would be to make sure that your website remains available all the time. Your website largely depends on how well your web-hosting server operates. With this, Monitor Scout certainly comes in handy by checking the accessibility of your website from multiple locations and sends request to the universal ports of the hosting servers.

In website and server monitoring, there are a certain aspects that you need to focus on:

HTTP monitoring: Also known as Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, this monitoring checks the availability of the website.

DNS monitoring: this online monitoring service makes sure that your website domain name is being resolved correctly by the server.

Testing FTP: File Transfer Protocol works between port number 21 and 22. It helps in checking the speed and connectivity using the file transfer protocol for transferring files between computer networks for both downloading & uploading files.

Monitoring TCP: Transmission Control Protocol has been designed for smooth transfer of data from one device to another within a network.

Monitoring SMTP: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol works on port number 25. This monitoring check secures all emails associated with data of a network.

Testing POP3: This monitoring check retrieves or downloads e-mails from the remote servers. The POP or Post Office Protocol has been developed in various stages. At present, the standard version has been defined as POP3.

A Closer look at Server monitoring and its components:

How well your website works mainly depends upon the health of your server. In addition to this, you will find that your server also depends on the accuracy and performance of the set of programs and protocols as well as hardware components. With the help of a server monitoring systems you will be able to keep an eye on anything and everything including the CPU, RAM, HDD, NICs, Switch, router, etc.
How Monitor Scout helps in improving server performance?

By choosing server monitoring solutions you will not only be able to identify the issues with the system, but at the same time you can also enhance the performance of the server. It keeps you informed through SMS or email after gathering information from routine scheduled automated checks.

Let us now take a look at the different hardware statistics that should be monitored:

  • CPU is the core of any system so it should be logical to check for it regularly and see if certain processes are hogging CPU resources as this could mean that the application is misbehaving and should be terminated. It is also ideal to set thresholds as the CPU usage in order to prevent lockups.
  • RAM is another integral part of the system. All applications are using memory when being run, and some of them need more than others. RAM actually helps free up the CPU because processed data are stored in RAM so that they will not have to be processed by the CPU again. If there is less RAM, then processed data cannot often be store resulting in the CPU doing more work in order to provide the data to applications every time that it is required, instead of just fetching that data from RAM. The type of applications being run should be scaled according to the available RAM.

Disk space is a big factor but is becoming less of an issue as storage capacity technology is becoming cheaper. Still, this needs to be monitored simply for its performance and availability’s sake.
