Nubium Sentinel is a supervisory SaaS type service for availability monitoring and resource usage reporting.
|Ping||Ping is issued to the server to verify IP level connectivity.|
|CPU||Monitor CPU load average.|
|Memory||Check real memory total capacity, real memory usage, the amount of the swap allocated, and the amount of the swap usage.|
|Disk||Monitor Total space, Used space size on the disk.|
|Network||Monitor Input / Output network traffic volume.|
Sentinel sends 3 requests every five minutes.
If Sentinel would fail to receive every echo packet from target host within 5 seconds each,
it will appear that the remote host is not reachable.(works similar to ICMP Ping command [ping -c 3 -w 5])
|Others||Sentinel collects data every five minutes.|
Sentinel keeps watch over resources and notifies you immediately by email as soon as defined thresholds are exceeded.
(The thresholds are the values you set on the Server Information Edit page. )
The information gathered by an SNMP agent on the target host.
We support Linux, UNIX, BSD OS now. We plan to support for Windows OS in the future.
If you have any requests, please contact to the inquiry page.
Configuration of target hosts is made on the Server setting screen. You can add or edit the monitoring setting from Server List.
|Add new server. (Up to five )|
|Edit the server configuration|
|Delete the server from the list. (Collected data will be deleted together)|
|name||Please set the name of the server. (Make this a descriptive name.)|
Please set IP/FQDN of the target server.
You cannot use same IP/FQDN address for different servers.
This must be a public IP.
|Monitoring settings||monitoring target. non monitoring target.|
|Alert mail settings||The threshold of the check in order to trigger an alert email.|
Disk : The disk partition of the server.
Network : The name of the network interface card.
|Test of server setting value||
Check whether configuration is done properly.
(The SNMP agent should be installed and set to the target servers in advance. )
You can find monitoring result of resources (CPU,Memory,Disk,Network)
by selecting "Resource Monitor" of the service tab.
If you register more than 2 servers, Server List will be shown. Please select icon of the server you wants to see the result.
When the server is selected, the resource usage graphs by latest 24 hours displayed.
CPU load average of every one and five minute displayed in the chart.
Real memory total capacity, real memory usage, the amount of the swap allocated,
and the amount of the swap usage are displayed in the chart.
Total space size, Used space size on the disk displayed in the chart.
- The partition of the disk to be monitored can be specified from the Server Information Edit screen.
Please execute "Test server settings" if you are not sure about the partition, the test will inform you candidate names to set.
The amount of the Input / Output traffic volume of the network displayed in the chart.
- Network interface card to be monitored can be specified from the Server Information Edit screen.
Please execute "Test server settings" if you are not sure about the network interface card,
the test will inform you candidate names to set.
The monitoring result of Ping can be confirmed on the Ping Monitor screen in the service tab.
The registration Web site monitoring service. (via HTTP Status code)
Sentinel have been monitoring the published Web site.(via HTTP or HTTPS)
In five minutes, the registered site is monitoring.
When the response from the site doesn't return within 10 seconds, the request is issued to the site again.
When the response doesn't come back within 10 seconds continuing three times, it is judged the time-out.
Alert mail is transmitted to the registered mail address, except when the status code of the response of the site to be observed is 2xx.
(alert main example)
**** HTTP/HTTPS ALERT from Sentinel **** Target URL : http://xxx.xxx.xxx/hoge Result : HTTP status code error.
