Configuring Advanced Monitoring for your Server

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
  1. Go to
  2. Log in using your Managed Control Panel credentials.
  3. Click on My Monitoring > Setup Monitoring
  4. Click on Add New Server
  5. 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.
    Server Name
    Choose a name that distinguishes this from your other servers.

    IP Address
    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.

    See 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.
