    I have a dedicated server with cPanel/WHM installed. I am familiar with apps like Nagios and Host Monitor, but Host Monitor is Windows only, and Nagios is a very complex setup, that I'm not even going to get into. So my question is this: Does WHM have anything built in to monitor services like SMTP, POP, Web, and etc and send out email/SMS alerts when the service checks fail? If not, is there another solution I can setup via SSH to accomplish this? PHP script with a SQL backend would even work fine, as long as it's not as complex as Nagios is...

    There is built-in functionality for service monitoring and e-mail and IM-based notifications; I recommend the following documentation resources for detailed information on setup and configuration of the available features:
    BasicSetup < AllDocumentation/WHMDocs < TWiki
    ServerContacts < AllDocumentation/WHMDocs < TWiki
    ServiceMgr < AllDocumentation/WHMDocs < TWiki

    yes, there is a solution of this problem
    actually, there are a lot of programs that can monitor services, networks, servers and so on.
    In our network we use "10-Strike: Network Monitor". this program can send SMS and emails, run alerts if smth is wrong. it obtains all informaion online :cool:
