    Good Free VPS Server Monitoring

    CraigWatsonCraigWatson Member
    edited August 2015 in General

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent free monitoring tool for Linux (specifically Ubuntu 14.04)?

    Needs to handle metrics (so CPU, RAM, network) and (ideally) email-based alerting for < 5 servers, and be SaaS. Retention isn't a huge issue but 1 month would be nice.

    Ideally something like StackDriver or NewRelic would do, but I'm unsure exactly how many servers NR's Lite tier supports, or whether you can just monitor servers on their own without app-level reporting.

      I use NixStats, New Relic Server Monitoring, and Linode Longview (it's free even for non-linode servers)

    • @vfuse nice, thanks a lot, nixstats looks awesome!

      I've created a Puppet module to help with installing (all of my boxes are Puppet-controlled).

      Feel free to share it around - https://forge.puppetlabs.com/CraigWatson1987/nixstats

      Only installs the Bash agent at the moment, may add the python one later this week :)

    • @vfuse Nixstats looks great going to add servers for monitoring soon will share the feed back But

      Great monitoring tools

      @vfuse

      Make your choice on your own But i can help you to make them right.

      try nodequery
      works good for me

    • I use: http://newrelic.com/ on the free tier.

    • Too bad, nixstats is timing out for me right now when I went to sign up.

      Frontend has been a bit up and down last hour or so, however API servers seem fine on the backend.

      Is a beta.

    • What about nodequery.com/?

    • @AshleyUk said:

      Yeah I understand it's beta, but wouldn't keeping the frontend up be a priority? It's been down for the past 2 hours counting.

      Observium, Nodequery, nixstats.

      LowEndDDoS?

      Taking a hiatus.

    • Nixstats has been timing out for me all day. No biggy to me but might be a sign needs to build out more before it goes live.

      Have I mentioned how much I hate auto correct recently?

      Everything should be good to go again now. Maintenance didn't last that long but somehow cloudflare kept showing 50x errors.

      Obviously as soon as NIXStats goes into production things like this won't happen, that's why it's in (closed) beta, so we can test the waters.

      Its free during the closed Beta period, will be chargeable once feature full and bugs resolved, I am sure will be some form of discount for people that helped/support during the beta stage.
