Hi,

Im looking for a bit of advice on server monitoring software.
Im looking for a solution that can monitor all the basic statistics, but must include the below.
Id like it to be displayed on a wall TV, so a web based summary screen(like copper egg) is a must.

Needs to be able to give stats on:
Ram usage
CPU usage
Backups success\failure
Disk Space

Any ideas?

Hello :),

You can install munin plugin on your server to monitor CPU, Ram and Server Load. Login your server through WHM >> cPanel >> Manage Plugins.

If you want to access your munin graphs without WHM login, you can setup that with single cronjob. Please check the following thread and try to setup that if you want.

Monit works very well for this, you couple that with M/monit and it is really flexible and powerful. You can also have monit restart applications based on conditions. Let's say Apache is bogging down and showing very high CPU use. You can have monit restart it automatically. The options are really endless.

Another good option is to setup an ELK stack and use a GUI like Kibana. You could then pass not only server usage statistics (and actually store them) - but also centralize server logging at the same time.

Can someone confirm this? Is it safe to disable chkservd?
Hello :)

Yes, this is fine if you are using an alternate method of monitoring your services.

Thank you.
