System Integrity Monitor Vs Outsourced Monitoring

Jul 29, 2008

If I have a company watching my integral services, do I need SIM? Are there benefits to keeping it and having outsourced monitoring alongside it?

System Integrity Monitor

May 29, 2007

I installed system integrity monitor problem

It says:

[05/29/07 21:35:15]: HTTP url request failed, assuming offline.
[05/29/07 21:35:15]: HTTP offline, restart limit exceeded.

How do i increase this so called restart limit?

System Health Monitoring

Apr 28, 2008

I am wondering if anyone knows of any good system monitors for Linux. I will be installing several web and database servers at a branch office and would like to receive stats like system temperature, cpu load, memory usage, etc. Basically something to tell to warn me in the event of a hardware error. I am looking something with an easy-to-use web interface and ability to generate reports.

System Performance Monitoring Package W/ Graphical Output

Apr 14, 2007

some software which would allow me to monitor critical information about my VPS and possibly give me graphs/charts that show me things like my system's load over time. Since it is a VPS I may want to see this charts/graphs via a web interface if I can't just download some rendered jpg's or somethin from the server on a regular basis.

So what I'm looking for is something kinda like the Bandwidth page under Web/FTP Stats in Cpanel so I can easily get a better idea over a few days or week(s) what times of the day my server is getting taxed and when load low.

File Integrity Check

Aug 4, 2008

I use tripwire for a long time on my FreeBSD servers

one thing that's bugging me is that it takes like 20 minutes to check the system with the default config:

so I'd like to know:
1) is there currently some other tool that does tripwire job better?

2) anyone has a list of "probably changed files when a server is hacked", or something like that?

I mean, I'll be happy if tests can take 2 minutes instead of 20 and I detect intrusion 99% of the times instead of 99,9%

so "key files/dirs" would probably be enough instead of checking a lot of dirs with recursion

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Script To Test Integrity Of DNS - SOA Records?

May 20, 2014

I wrote a script to test the integrity of my DNS and run it from time to time on my server...

I just ran it today and it discovered I suddenly have 5 domains with SOA-records that doesn't point to itself. They point to the secondary nameserver.

They are records that exist for years and were for sure correct before (I know this because of that script).

If I do a "restore defaults" it isn't corrected and if I switch to slave and then back to master it doesn't change either...

The file /var/named/run-root/var/ is updated, but the slave-DNS stays in that file...

The only way I'm able to correct it is by deleting the NS-record with the slave DNS and adding it again.

I assume there's some mechanism that scans the NS-records and then decides to make that one the SOA. This has always worked fine... also on this server.

Transfering My Clients To A New Host But Maintaining Website Function And Integrity

Jan 6, 2009

I have 35 clients hosting on my dedicated server.

I am going to be ending my service as a host provider, and I need to transfer all of my clients to a new host.

Many of my clients sites were written 3-4 years ago in php while global vars was still off, and so many of the sites might not function correctly if I just pop them to a new host.

My first solution would be to bypass the php .ini file with a public_html/ based ini that would override any newer server settings.

Does anyone know of a good host that could take my clients? And also support the php version locally to the shared account?

I need a host that is reliable, and honest.

Am I going about this the right way?

I am open to any suggestions or advice on this.

I should probably add, all of my clients pay on an annual basis from $89-$140. None of my clients run video sites or any heavy media stuff.

No HW Raid - FreeBSD Gmirror (soft-raid1) As Best Practice For Data Integrity?

Jul 30, 2006

Dedicated server has 2 HDD but I am not going to pay another $25/month for the hardware RAID solution (already stretched too far).

My plan is to install FreeBSD 6 and use Gmirror to establish a raid-1 "soft" mirror.

Advantages: Entire drive is mirrored including the OS. Drives can be remotely inserted or removed from the mirror set using a console command so its possible to uncouple the mirror and perform software updates on a single drive then re-establish the mirror only after the updates have proved successful.

Disadvantages: Lower I/O than hardware solution (not a problem for me) others???

I rarely see people consider software raid for a tight-budget server and I am wondering why? Could it be that other OS's dont have a solution as good as gmirror? Or is it just that crappy soft-raid in the past has left a bitter taste in admins mouths? Or perhaps admins need the extra I/O of hardware?

What Do You Monitor

May 28, 2009

if you use a site monitoring service (or two) do you need to setup monitors for each website/domain on your VPS or can you just monitor the primary services on the VPS?

Pluses/Minuses for either way?

Monitor Application

Jan 7, 2009

I want to monitor my application to make sure it is 24x7 uptime, if there is anything interrupt, I will be notified by email/SMS right away. There are several web monitoring service, but they all monitor ports, not application. I have bad experience, like, althoguh the web server is alive, but the application is already dead.

So, I want to monitor application instead of monitor a port. Anybody knows where I may find this kind of service?

I want to be able to monitor (with statistic) and cap traffic on 3+ servers.

but what do you do?

and how to make such a monitor redundant so if it fails the network is not cut off from the world?

How To Monitor Spammer Sactivity

May 26, 2007

I just setup my own LAMP server.

It is only used for my own domains so I want to be able to watch all mail that gets sent from my server, via php or otherwise.

Basically I just want to be able to personally monitor what mail is getting sent from my server so that I can watch for possible spammer activity.

I am using postfix and webmin.. I have sendmail installed to, but I don't think it is getting used..

I guess theres got to be a log somwhere... but I am not sure where it is?

I have postfix set to CC me of all mail that gets sent but, it doesnt seem to work all the time.. just for certain things..
