    What are the best tools (which are free or a low monthly value) that I can use to monitor php, mysql and my web server? I do not want a tool that shows me just the uptime but rather that I make a diagnosis of each service and show me suggestions on how to improve it or some way for me to do it myself.

    The information munin provides is very basic. I have not found any benefit in this tool.

    Hello,

    Are you seeking to primarily monitor uptime, or to determine which accounts are utilizing resources? For resource usage, you may find CloudLinux to be a useful tool:

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Cloudlinux is really a good choice but it is an investment that I can not afford now. I would like a tool that tells me which user, processes or services are using more resources. It does not have to be just a tool, you can indicate me more than one =)

    Hello,

    CloudLinux is really the only application I'm aware of that offers that level of report for each individual account. I'll leave this thread open for additional user-feedback.

    Thank you.

    I have been using CL for quite some time now and to say the least, it is really worth my "investment". At first, I was pretty skeptical about CL as a marketing gimmick but after using it for awhile (with KernelCare), it is not just for monitoring but also give you the best security practices (without messing with the terminal), extra features such as the php and extension selector, cagefs (isolate your end users), limit some of users resources without crashing their neighbors, and for all I know; I bought a cheaper license from reseller and never been happier! You are actually paying for the premium service, if you are looking for free alternative the best way is to manually monitor your server (ps aux); talking about free lunch; CL is the way to go - and no - I'm not working for CL :-p.

    This particular server has few features (low RAM and CPU). In this way, Cloudlinux would only slow my server down because the system it uses to make limitations also pulls resources. But if you had a VPS with a lot more features or a dedicated one, that would be an option.
