Monitoring Servers and Sites

Although we’re definitely going to build monitoring and alerting into SpinupWP in the future, it’s a huge project and we’re just not there yet. The good news is that there are some excellent monitoring and alerting options you can use with your SpinupWP servers and sites.

In fact, most cloud server providers include server-level monitoring and alerting as part of their platform. AWS doesn’t but DigitalOcean, Linode, and Vultr all do.

But even if your provider does include server-level monitoring, you probably also want to monitor your sites. We recommend Oh Dear! or Pingdom for monitoring site uptime, transactions, and page speed. That’s what we use for our sites.

If your provider doesn’t include server-level monitoring and alerting, you could try New Relic, Nginx Amplify, or Pingdom Server Monitoring. New Relic offers a lot more features than Amplify or Pingdom, but at a higher cost. Although Amplify and Pingdom are simpler, they could very well be sufficient for your needs. We recommend taking a look at their features and maybe even trying it to decide if it’s a good fit for you before trying New Relic.

A final option here is to set up an open source monitoring solution like Netdata or Nagios. But you’ll need to run this on your own server and manage it yourself.
