MONITORING

Dedicatedhosting4u.com will monitor a single protocol on each system, to verify that the system is operational. The default protocol that is monitored is HTTP (Port 80), however, on systems that do not respond to such, monitoring is performed via another protocol. Available monitoring protocols are HTTP, SMTP, FTP, SSH, and ICMP(PING). The customer may request that a specific protocol and port is monitored, rather than the Dedicatedhosting4u.com default selection. Monitoring of multiple ports may be available at an additional cost. Fully Managed systems are monitored on multiple protocols, including custom protocols, and may be user-defined. If a server fails to respond to a monitored protocol, Dedicatedhosting4u.com will manually attempt to check the status of the server via another protocol. Dedicatedhosting4u.com will automatically reboot systems that fail to respond after a second tested protocol fails. If the second tested protocol responds properly, Dedicatedhosting4u.com will attempt to log into the system to restore/restart service on the initial failed protocol that was being monitored.
