Web Server Monitoring

Make Sure Your Website is Always Up and Running

Why is Web Server Monitoring Important?

Websites have become an increasingly important tool for all businesses. They are used to sell products and services, communicate with clients and business partners, to distribute information, etc. Even a downtime of just a few minutes can potentially cost you thousands of dollars, and a badly performing website that experiences prolonged downtimes can significantly damage a company's reputation. It is therefore paramount to have an efficient web server monitoring solution in place that will help you to avoid downtimes and quickly troubleshoot all problems.

Monitor Your Web Server Using PRTG

PRTG Network Monitor gives you peace of mind by continuously monitoring your web servers. Should a web site be down or not be working properly, you will immediately be notified.

PRTG Network Monitor is Paessler's powerful network and server monitoring software. It checks the uptime and performance of network devices and gives you a complete overview of your network. Thanks to more than 200 different sensor types, it is also a comprehensive bandwidth tool, a free IP sniffer, a powerful SNMP server, a VMware monitor, and so on.

How Does PRTG Monitor Web Servers?

Using an advanced PING test, it makes sure that your web server and other vital network devices can be reached. Several different HTTP sensors are used to check the content and correct functioning of your websites. PRTG also includes support for database monitoring, i.e. the SQL server monitor, which will alert you to SQL problems.

Worldwide Web Server Monitoring and Website Testing

If you want to check your website's availability and speed from different locations, you can do so using PRTG's remote probes. Simply install the probes at your branch offices or other networks that you have access to and start monitoring your web server from a global perspective.

Advanced Web Server Monitoring

In addition to checking whether your web server is available and your website working correctly, you can also monitor parameters such as the web server's CPU and memory usage, free disk space, etc. This helps you to identify possible problems at an early stage, and to reduce the risk server failures that can lead to downtimes.
