Instant Monitoring

chef, puppet, ansible Server demo poster

Automagically monitors key metrics.

Pingdom Server Monitor collects key performance metrics automatically: CPU, Memory, Disk, Network, and process data are gathered from every server. Go from zero to 100% visibility typically in minutes. Pingdom Server Monitor automatically monitors new servers when they come online.

StatsD made easy.

Pingdom Server Monitor's agent includes a feather-weight StatsD collector. StatsD metrics are first-class citizens in Pingdom Server Monitor: use them on dashboards alongside your application and infrastructure metrics, and in Pingdom Server Monitor's versitile alerting system. Learn more

Lightweight install.

No separate monitoring server to manage. Just install our agent and you've got monitoring. Get up and running quickly with our simple bash installer, Chef, Ansible, or Puppet instructions. You can tweak how Pingdom Server Monitor monitors your different server roles without a complicated config syntax.

Update 40 servers as easily as four with Roles.

Pingdom Server Monitor's roles-based approach to grouping servers makes monitoring 40 servers as easy as monitoring four. Instead of updating monitoring settings on individual servers, just update the role. Everything stays in sync.

Dashboards Optimized For Discovery

Watch as we build an actionable dashboard in under 60 seconds:

Elastic dashboards

Servers come and go. Our dashboards automatically adapt to your auto-scaling infrastructure.

One-second resolution.

Switch to realtime mode to refresh your data every second. Travel back to view 30 days of high-resolution, one-minute updates and a year of daily summaries.

Compose via drag-drop or keyboard.

Of course you can drag and drop to build dashboards, but you can also compose dashboards entirely by keyboard.

Sharable URL.

Collaborate effortlessly with read-only views of your dashboards. Paste a shareable URL in email or chat.

Get Notified When Things Go Wrong

Pingdom Server Monitor analyzes your data for spikes and trends in real-time.

You can create flexible thresholds for alerts. For example, did the amount of free disk space go down dramatically in the last hour? Did the number of slow DB queries increase significantly relative to last week?

If something's wrong, Pingdom Server Monitor notifies you via email, SMS, webhooks, Pagerduty, Hipchat, and more. You can even use different notification channels for different alert priorities. For example, use SMS for urgent notifications and email for warning notifications.

Greater Flexibility With Custom Plugins

Don't mess with scripts.

Added Memcached to your app servers? It's one-click and zero deploys to start monitoring it. In most cases there's no reason to SSH onto your servers to monitor.

90+ open-source plugins.

From Apache to Zookeeper, we likely have you covered. All plugins in our directory are open-source, and many were created by members of our active community.

Write your own plugins.

If you need custom monitoring functionality, it's easy to write a new plugin. Plugins are small Ruby programs that run each time the agent runs. Pingdom Server Monitor plugins tend to be very small and easy to work with.
