One Monitor/keyboard To Several Servers At Once

Jun 21, 2009

Just built my homemade server rack and I have 6 newly acquired 'used servers' and an old and very heavy monitor with keyboard.

How can I best hook up the monitor/keyboard to multiple servers and just switch them? Is there such a thing a 'switch' for peripherals?

I would need plenty of connection cables not doubt.

Hardware: Db Servers, Web Servers, File Servers. Cpu, Ram, Disk

Jan 20, 2007

I have a lot of questions here so if you can't answer them all I understand. even pointing me somewhere where I could get the answers would be appreciated; hardware sites focusing on server hardware, forums focusing on such, etc.

we plan to have three different types of servers:

- db server (self explanatory. mysql. for forums, mysql driven sites.)

- file server (lots of files around ~2-10MB, consistant 70mbps right now, but we want more room for upgrades. needs a LOT of storage room.)

- web server (lots of php files, but also static things like plain html, images, etc. also includes all misc services for the setup-- dns, etc.)

could I be given a rundown for which hardware each of the three should have? I don't need specifics, even just knowing that more ram is important here while cpu doesn't matter as much, or that the fastest disks available are a must, etc would all be valuable info for me. despite that, I certainly wouldn't mind specific hypothetical hardware configs.

for the database server I'm assuming the more ram the better. not entirely sure about the cpu? also not positive on disks...

for the fileserver, how much ram would be practical or useful? disk io will be an issue I'm because plenty of people will be pulling files at once so the disk needs to read from multiple places. scsi (and even raptors) are not an option as we need 750GB+ of space on a reasonable budget. more ram will take some load of of the disks, but how much is neccessary / reasonable?

for the web server I'm assuming cpu first, then ram, but it'll likely need less ram than the db server?

I'm more lost on the disks than anything. scsi on the fileserver is not an option under any circumstances due to $/GB. for the db & web server I'm willing to pay for scsi if the performance increase really does warrant the extra money, but I'd like to be convinced before shelling it out. if you have benchmarks geared at server hardware when it comes to disks I'd really appreciate it.

also, what's the best way to network these together when colocated? each one with a dual gigabit ethernet port and then the communications go to and from the router?

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?

Monitor Traffic

Jun 30, 2008

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

how is this done best?

I was thinking of somekind of switch or server set inbetween the servers and the internet monitoring and keeping data on the traffic use etc.

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..

How Do You Monitor Your Ranges For Blacklisted IPS

Oct 4, 2009

We have a few customers who have multiple C classes with us and we are wondering how most of you monitor for blacklisting.

We currently randomly pick a few IPS and check them once a month but this is not very thorough. We were wondering if there is a program out there that can check say a /20 automatically once a month or atleast something we can initiate an automated check once a month with?

Sevices To Monitor With Nagios

Oct 23, 2009

I am wondering what services it is best to monitor with Nagios which I've installed on my Centos 5.3 VPS. I wish to monitor and understand all essential services of the VPS itself at this stage but, generally, to make the best possible use of Nagios as an analytical tool as well as basic monitoring notifications, etc.

I already have a rough idea based on the main services being run. But I imagine there may be more to this than meets the eye, in particular, in view of any potential performance cost, etc.

I am especially keen to obtain as detailed a picture as possible concerning performance related criteria with a mind to indicating possible improvements that could be made.

How To Monitor .htaccess Change

Mar 2, 2009

We have a website that uses php include. It is specified in .htaccess to parse all html file to parse for php so php include can be executed.

We don't know the exact cause but our Addhandler line in .htaccess gets keep commented by someone or something and include file (footer) does not show up from time to time. I was told cpanel update inserts the comment but I am not sure.

My question is:

1. How can I prevent this from happening?

2. If it gets modified, how can I get notification?

How To Monitor RAID Setup?

May 2, 2008

we've got our new machine up and running smoothly. It's a core2duo running CentOS with Plesk 8.3. We have 2 drives in a RAID 1 configuration for reliability sake, and I'm looking for something to help me monitor the status of the disks in the array. Since RAID is pretty useless unless you know if one of the disks has died.

Is there some open source utility that will monitor this and email me if something is wrong? Perhaps something with a nice web interface?

Even better... is there some addon to plesk that will help with this?

CPU/Memory/MySQL Monitor

Mar 23, 2008

Since upgrading to Apache 2 I am no longer able to tell which domains are the busiest using CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage. Now Apache processes are all lumped together and individual domains only show cron, mail and FTP usage. I opened a ticket with cPanel and they know of the problem but there is still no solution. Is there another way I can tell which of my sites is using the most resources until this bug is fixed?

How Can I Monitor Emails From Php/asp Sites

Mar 29, 2007

I have an MSWIN 2003 hosting server with 350 working domains.

The problem is that I receive hundreds of failures of emails that get sent from my server..to some random email addresses.

I try to find a way to locate the website with the script, that spams but logs dont help at all.

The mail server is Mail Enable.

The messaged I get back wont help either..
they are something like this:

Message contents follow:

Received: from win12 ([]) by myserver.tld with MailEnable ESMTP; Thu, 29 Mar 2007 01:51:11 +0300
Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2007 01:51:11 �0200
Subject: Verify Your Account Details
To: deeandra@aol.com
From: U.S. Bank <internetbanking@usbank.com>

If I try to search or grep all the files hosted in the server that include some word like "Account Details" it will not find anything...

Uptime Monitor Scripts

Aug 28, 2007

given the recent paid-switch of host-tracker, i want to monitor some websites myself.

I've a fairly reliable dedicated server (2007 : 12 minutes downtime so far checked every minute), so i'd like to monitor from this server some websites shared-hosted elsewhere, (just 1 server is not optimal, but the chance of both being unavailable at the same time should be minimal).

I'm wondering if someone could be so kind to suggest me some pre-made scripts /software suitable for my needs, basically i need just something that monitors my website and send me emails when goes down, and when it's back.

Uptime calculation would be great, but not mandatory.
