Our server monitoring solution provides you with an overall picture of your hosting so you can proactively address issues affecting your server performance. With real-time alerting you can choose to react to notifications in minutes or you can choose for a Memset System administrator to respond. We regularly check that your server is accessible and responsive from outside the data centre by pinging. This is self-monitored, however, if the server becomes unavailable for more than 10 minutes we will automatically attempt to reboot the server. All aspects of basic monitoring are included, but in addition we monitor key elements of your server — including Apache, MySQL, SSH, HTTP and many more, alerting you to issues before they have impacted your performance. It is included as part of the Premium Support package where you can configure alerts to go directly to a Memset on-call systems administrator.
