MONITOR SCOUT PARTNERS
CUTTING EDGE MONITORING
Monitor Scout offers high quality monitoring services with over 15 monitoring locations across the globe. In order to control uptime and latency for your website and/or server solution we perform 50 different checks using some of the most superior internet protocols today e.g. PING, HTTP, IMAP, POP3, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, DNS, VNC, FTP, TCP, RDP, SSH, DNS, UDP, SMTP and MAIL DELIVERY.
Our services are designed to make sure you will be immediately alerted if a problem should occur on your website, server, hardware or web application. As part of our service we also help you track your website's latency response time (how fast your web page is responding online).
Below you can find more information about the different checks we carry out.
Ping is a query to determine whether a device is in connection with the ping request computer. The monitor check sends out a ping request to your device, and if it doesn't respond you will be alerted.
HTTP stands for hypertext transfer protocol and is used to transfer hypertext requests and information between servers and browsers. HTTP Monitor will help you monitor your website to see that it is responding. It will also perform text string checks on your website. Under advanced settings you can fill out valid status codes and specify if the site is using SSL.
FTP service helps transfer data from a system to another and usually works on port number 21 and 22. The FTP Monitor ensures the FTP service is working.
TCP Port Monitor
TCP stands for Transmission Control Protocol and is developed to transfer data from one network device to another; TCP uses a retransmission strategy to ensure that no data will be lost. If your monitored TCP port is not responding you will immediately be notified.
UDP Port Monitor
UDP (User Datagram Protocol) is a communications protocol that offers service when messages are exchanged between computers in a protocol network. The monitor confirms a certain UDP port is answering correctly and sends notification if a problem occurs.
IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is used for retrieving emails stored on a mail server. Monitoring this will ensure your mail server is up and running.
POP3 Server Monitor
POP3 (Post Office Protocol version3) is a protocol for receiving e-mail, which will be downloaded to your computer from the server of an Internet service provider (ISP). The monitor will check for the user's name (email address) and domain name to deliver mails.
Mail SMTP server Monitor
Mail SMTP (Simple mail transfer protocol) is a data transmission format used to send and receive email. The service usually runs on port number 25 by an SMTP agent. Under advanced settings you can fill out your SMTP settings and specify whether SMTP should use SSL or TLS.
Mail Delivery Monitor
Mail Delivery is a combination of the SMTP and POP3 services. The monitor will verify that an email can be delivered and transferred from the POP3 server. You fill out your SMTP settings under advanced settings.
RDP Server Monitor
RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) provides access to the desktop of a computer running Windows from another location. This allows you to work on a remote system the same way you work on a local system. The RDP monitor will assure the RDP service is up and running.
SSH Server Monitor
SSH (Secure Shell) is a network protocol that allows data exchange using a secure channel between two networked devices. Linux servers are often connected and administrated through SSH. The monitor will make sure the service is functioning.
DNS Server Monitor
DNS (Domain Name Server) automatically translates Internet addresses to the numeric machine addresses that computers use, which is useful when the website's name is provided in the browser's address bar. This means you can go to a domain name instead of an IP address. DNS Server Monitor verifies that your server is up and running.
DNS Record Monitor
A DNS server is configured with a "zone file" for each domain that contains "resource records." There are several types of records: A, CNAME, MX, TXT, NS etc. These records verify that the domain name is working and can redirect you to a website or mail server. Should a DNS record error occur the monitor you will immediately notify you.
VNC server Monitor
VNC Virtual Network Computing is a graphical desktop sharing(GUI) system using the RFB protocol to remotely control Linux from another computer. The VNC server Monitor makes sure the service functioning properly.
IRC Server Monitor
IRC Internet Relay Chat is a network area where users can communicate interactively. The check makes sure that your service is up and running.
