You love Cloud Monitoring for your websites. And now there's more to love, with our new Server Monitoring feature. With Server Monitoring, you can go deeper into your servers—dedicated or cloud, in any data center—and monitor individual resources inside the server.
Monitor your server resources—including CPU, disk, memory, and network resources—and make sure they're behaving as they should. You can also define usage thresholds and receive automatic alerts when limits are exceeded.
A small Cloud Monitoring Agent, installed on your server, will monitor your server resources and communicate constantly with the Rackspace Cloud Monitoring System, in three geographically separated data centers. The agent will automatically select the closest data center as its primary communication channel, and will immediately fail over to another data center if there's an outage—so you can get timely and accurate alerts even in the case of a natural disaster.
View the processes running on your server, as well as server resource statistics, at any time. You can also leverage the API to use these stats and processes to automate your application workflows.
The Cloud Monitoring Agent has been designed from the ground up to consume minimal server memory. A typical configuration uses less than 1% of the memory available, even on our smallest 512 MB next generation Cloud Servers. Learn more about the Cloud Monitoring Agent.
