My company has been having some issues with our email periodically but our host provides no help other than a graph showing the amount of daily relays.
Does anyone know of a good email server montior or diagnostic solution that works with MailEnable? Preferably something free or cheap.
I basically want to be able to get in and see what emails were sent and received from who and the IPs if possible. I don't care about seeing the content of peoples emails but just a report similar to a telephone bill would surely help.
Is anyone aware of any good tools or tips that I can use to monitor use of qmail/sendmail to generate and send email messages from PHP scripts on a web server?
I want to keep a check on sites that are sending email from the site, to make sure they are not being exploited and result in our server getting blacklisted by big service providers. I'd love a tool that would automatically block messages from an account after a certain threshold is hit.
I'm running a Plesk 8.1.1 & 8.2.0 server configuration..
Become my attention when we hire company/people to handle our server due our knowledge about manage dedicated server is low level and we run big site on that server.
Anybody know about tips how to prevent staff from managed service steal our site,even they has been trusted and handled hundred or thousand servers.As we know when we hired them for full managed service,they have our root access.
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy hosting with CheapVPS.co.uk, but I find their level 1 support staff to be lacking the basic skills required to respond in a helpful manner.
Their typical replies often instruct me to confirm that the problem has been resolved, when in fact nothing has changed; this is just a waste of my time (and theirs).
I would expect that my issue is forwarded to level 2-3 admins when level 1 staff can't provide a sound solution/fix. This is the case sometimes, but not always. Most importantly (and this occurred to me today) level 1 staff should never, in any form, have access to a customer's VPS without prior consent/approval. Maybe I'm coming off as a little paranoid here, but I'm not fond of the idea of inexperienced individuals going through my stuff. Limiting access to just level 2/3 admins can only mean good as far as security is concerned.
I honestly can't recall a time when a good solution was provided by level 1 staff. While I strongly trust Rus Foster and the way he conducts business, I would ask him to take the above into account and reconsider the policies in place.
(I was originally going to paste a screenshot of my last support ticket, but I now think it won't be neccassary as my post adequately conveys my concerns)
A month back i signed up for reseller hosting with santrex, earlier I've had a VPS since a couple of months which i regularly pay for.
The reseller account was however not according to my expectations as i did not get required amount of support as i should have got.
I did not wish to continue with the Reseller account so i simply did not bother to pay the due RESELLER invoice, however i paid the VPS invoice, BUT my VPS account got banned and the reseller went on being active.
What sort of stupidness would you guys call this? Carelessness or slow at understanding? This kind of services can never be expected from a well known host.
I've liked their services, but i must say after this i am really disappointed.
Can you guys recommend any software that allows you to give certain staff members access to your WHM, but can restrict what they can do in WHM, like they can create accounts, but many not suspend them or terminate accounts?
Here's one software I found: [url]
I'm just wondering why CPanel.net hasn't even made something like this yet?
I've been pretty happy with my servers with theplanet/ev1servers for the past, err, 5 years. But the OSes were out of date and it seemed like I could stand to get some significantly improved hardware for what I'm paying now (or, comparable hardware for a lot less).
I put in a RFQ from ThePlanet to see what I could do as far as upgrading my current server, hoping for something a little better than buying a new server while the old one is up and moving everything over, and also hopefully avoiding re-paying a one-time fee I had for a secondary hard drive.
Now I have no problem whatsoever with the result -- that my only option is to buy a new server, they won't migrate my HDs, and they won't upgrade my current server, and they won't give me any kind of credit for the second hard drive or let me transfer it to a new server. I get where they're coming form, even though it might make sense to figure out something a little better for a customer of 5 years that's dropped about $25k over that time period.
The problem is their sales staff. I'm surprised that theplanet (at least theplanet I remember from when I signed up) would have sales people so apathetic and basically useless.
Getting information I requested in my initial ticket took back-and-forth with a sales rep over the span of over 24 hours (and I still haven't really gotten an answer on one part, about my secondary hard drive). Actually looking at the ticket now, the initial response was over 24 hours after I opened a ticket (and it was opened during working hours).
Heck, the first two responses didn't even include a price for the hardware he wanted me to buy, just if I wanted to proceed and buy it.
Figuring it beats waiting I did one of their instant chats and before answering my questions I was told to be sure to give the guy credit for the servers I order. In fact, him telling me his contact information and to choose him were the only complete sentences I got, and roughly 80% of the communication I received.
I haven't needed support on my server recently, so I can't speak to if this is the quality of their support department now. I don't think I'll be around to find out though.
way to monitor my servers cpu load, but more importantly is there a way to monitor which php scripts are using the most resources? i have searched around and haven't found much information. i use fedora, apache, mysql just so you know.
We need a good (best?) network/hardware monitoring application for monitoring our servers located at 3 different datacenters and around 50 servers.. I've founded some programs but they don't cover my needs 100%
Basicly I need these;
- Adding servers easily.
- Adding monitoring channel for each servers. (load, network, disk/ram usage etc..)
- Adding users and attaching users to servers seperately. (For example I will add justify user and attach him to server1, will add wht user and attach him the server2 and their permissions will be different and they will have no control on other's servers.)
- Web based controller for users/admins
- I want to install it to my windows/linux servers and monitor all remotely..
What are some good monitoring companies that can keep track of downtime. Even more specifically looking for companies that can send an sms alert or possibly reboot the server following ceartin instructions during a downtime.
Though please provide all suggestion (even if they don't do the above).
Give me 1000GB or 2000GB and that's my limit that I'll try and not go over. Pretty simple.
However, I'm now dealing with a provider that has me really confused. This company is charging us based on 95th percentile and we're now being asked to commit to 8.5 MBPS while the server doesn't even go over 1500GB monthly bandwidth limit.
Is this correct:
- We're not using tons of bandwidth but we do have large bursts
- The company is ultimately charging you for the bursts
how can i find out who is using up all the resources of 1 of my server, i am running CENTOS Enterprise 5.2 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0, i have around 180 web site currently on this server and i would like to move my customer how need more power.
or limit my customers to 10% of the server resources for no longer than 10min.
I'm currently gathering a list of all VPS providers that offer proactive VPS (services etc...) monitoring. So far I know that Wiredtree and Liquidweb include it and Zone.net and Futurehosting (to a limited extent) offers it as an add-on. Anyone else have any that they know of?
