I have a windows 2003 vps and I need way monitor how much traffic I make per month. I believe I'm getting close to my quota and I need to measure it.
I've seen some nice free programs that claim to work on windows 2003 server but the fact is they don't use a service so they only work while the GUI program runs, which is obviously silly for a server!
What do you guys use for this? I mean other then web traffic tools since most of my traffic is not HTTP!
I am wondering if it has the ability to monitor not only network services, like apache, iis, mysql, mssql, but also processes? We have an application that runs as a standard process we need to monitor.
I was wondering if anyone out there knew of any programs out there that can monitor and record ping times to various server IP's and couple output say a simple graph. There used to be this website I used that you could simply go onto there site, and register, and put in your servers ip addresses and it would output a simple graph that showed latency, loss etc for any ip you put into there system and displayed a web based mrtg type graph. I am having some troubles at one of the datacenters that I have some co-located servers at, and would like to show them how much packet loss they are having at a given time, or over say a 24 hour period.
I have a customer who wants to have *all* their computer internet activity routed through a server in our datacenter.
They want MSN, email, ftp, browser, ping from the command line, and even DNS lookups that initiate from any software running on the computer...
... they want everything to be routed through the datacenter server.
None of it should go through the ISP. Not even DNS lookups.
I'm thinking that a VPN setup is the way to do this. (ie: Run openVPN on the server and use openVPN client on the remote computers.)
So the idea is that as long as they are connected to the VPN server in our datacenter, which creates an encrypted "tunnel", then all traffic will be routed through the datacenter VPN server. The ISP will not be able to see anything at all, except the connection to the VPN server.
I would like to monitor my File Server. CPU, Ram, HD, Bandwidth... What is the best opensource software for this..... Does not have to be open source but would be better.... dont mind if they are web based tools either...
in the direction of a S.M.A.R.T client for Windows Server 2008 that matches as many of the following as possible:
- Lightweight - Free - Quite good
I'm not looking for one that hooks into explorer or even runs all the time. Something that runs periodically (shceduled task) and polls information, mailing / popping up an alert if it finds a problem.
Basically something like the smartmontools for Linux / unix.
Health Monitor Module is installed and running on server, but not visible under Server Administration Panel > Home > Server Health on Plesk Panel 11.0.9 update #7. Is there a trick to configuring home to show it and/or a direct way to launch view of server health?
Is it actually possible to find Windows dedicated server with unlimited traffic (1Gb Pipe)and reliable 24/7 technical support? Cause I have searched and found out that if the traffic is unlimited the pipe is too small, and if the pipe is big enough traffic is limited and additional one costs a fortune.
I currently have a server at the planet, this server lost network conection a few hours ago, I have spoke to the tech who tells me that when he tries to access the network connection settings the server just hangs.
Can anybody give me something to try here as I realy dont want to lose the data on the drive and the only real option i am being given is to reload the OS wiping my data, and although he could access my data an back it up, it seems it is against company policy to do so.
We are facing this weird problem from the past few days. Whenever we reboot the Windows 2003 Service, the server becomes inaccessible from the network or the internet after reboot. It is only after we run the sharedaccess.reg file available from http://windowsxp.mvps.org/reg/sharedaccess.reg and reboot the server, we can access the server remotely. But the same thing happens after rebooting the server again. We are also not able to start the Windows Firewall service. We get an error while trying to start the Windows Firewall Service. The screenshot of the error message is attached with this post.
I'm trying to create a network connection from Windows (8.1) to my Plesk filesharing folder, which should be straight forward. For some strange reason my Windows desktop PC doesn't establish the connection but shows me an error message, saying that the provided folder is invalid (see attached images).
