SERVER MONITORING 101

CPU

Monitoring your CPU is fundamentally fundamental! It’s your server’s overall well-being. Monitoring its behaviour will teach you a lot about the processes that your machine needs to deal with. Specifying thresholds and being notified when the server exceeds them can save you a lot of headache and will help you understand what kind of computing power you or your company actually require.

Memory

We’ve all been there! Tens of processes happening at the same time? Your server cannot handle it! Your random-access memory is key and monitoring it can help you find out about any hurdles your server needs to tackle.

Disk space

Storing logs on your server? Running out of space? This simple monitoring trick will keep you informed about the current state of your disk space and will enable you to purge it when necessary.
