Monitoring websites and servers

Hello,

when designing business websites, I was often asked by my customers how they can monitor their websites and servers to detect downtimes as fast as possible (before their visitors complain about).

Since most commercial solutions are quite expensive and complex to use, I developed my own network monitoring application:

http://www.starenterprise.com/BusinessSoftware/STARDeviceMonitor/

You can use it to monitor static and dynamic websites, mailboxes and all kinds of network devices (supporting TCP protocol or ping requests).

If you are a website designer, system administrator or IT guy (or gal), perhaps you will also like it and recommend my app to your customers.

I appreciate your comments. :slight_smile:

Tobias.

Hope that’s okay posting this in the off-topic area…

No problem posting this here Tobias.

But I must point out that there are many services out there such as the one from http://www.aremysitesup.com/ which have a $1 per month service (was free!)

But good luck with yours and you should tell us why yours is better.

Sure, there are free services, there are paid services.

The idea of running an own software (let’s say on a virtual machine of a server) has the big advantage, that it’s a one-time payment only.

For example, aremysitesup.com charges $8 USD per month for monitoring five sites, my software costs 29,80 € and can monitor as many sites as you wish as well as other network services and devices.

Furthermore, I’m not sure if using a free site monitoring service is a good choice for businesses. You always get what you pay for, right ? :slight_smile:
