Advanced Monitoring for Dedicated Servers
Advanced monitoring sends notifications when your server utilization hits certain thresholds to the email address you specify. These include RAM, CPU, and disk space utilization.
NOTE: Advanced Monitoring is designed to monitor the health of your server. It is not a website monitoring tool.
Using Advanced Monitoring
Log in using your Managed Control Panel credentials.
Add New Server
When you are adding your server, you will be asked for certain information that is required in order to fully collect information from your server.
Choose a name that distinguishes this from your other servers.
This is the IP address of your server.
If your server has multiple IP addresses, please contact support to find out the correct IP address to use.
SNMP Community String
The SNMP Community String is similar to a password that our monitoring tool uses to communicate with yours. You must provide the SNMP Community String that was set up on your server otherwise we will not be able to collect data from your server. Your server uses SNMP V2.
How to Install SNMP and Configure the Community String
Administrator Username and Password
The administrator credentials are used to retrieve advanced data via WMI from your server.
In the Notifications tab, include an email address monitoring alerts should be sent to.
Expand each of the alert sections to specify your tolerance preferences.
Once your server is successfully added, you may click the link to your server to see the information that is being collected.
