Managed Hosting includes a wide variety of monitoring methods to ensure stable operation of your servers and applications.
Corresponding checks for all services will be created automatically via our configuration management. When we set up a new server basic performance checks are generated. When we install a web server HTTP checks are generated and when we install a new PostgreSQL server there are PostgreSQL service checks that get generated.
The accuracy of the checks is limited by the complexity of each service setup. That means we can't monitor your applications status-check JSON that gets returned via a custom URL automatically.
We don't just check for thresholds and get notifications about it, many of our metrics (e.g. load, memory or disk usage) get recorded as a time series so that we can analyze problems in the past or forecast possible issues in the future.
Before you get lost in a long list of service checks already managed by us you should know that we can implement service checks customized for your environment and your application. The effort and costs for creating such services can vary heavily. Please ask us via
email@example.com before going on a monitoring excursion without us.
By default only the makandra operations team receives our monitoring notifications. Service checks implemented for your server can send notifications to an e-mail address of your choice. Contact us if you want this.
This is only part of all the service checks created by makandra. These services ensure the monitoring of basic functionality of the hosted services.
We create at least one service check for every service we're supplying for our customers (no matter if it's Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, Redis or something else).
As these checks change their thresholds from time to time and new checks are added or old ones get removed, so we can't supply a complete and current list.
If you think one of your services is not sufficient monitored don't hesitate to contact us, though!
