Passive Monitoring
Passive Monitoring Passive Monitoring is the way to check the site performance by server-side software.

Passive Monitoring is the way to check the site performance by server-side software. It can create the exact copy of incoming traffic for analysis, or it can operate on real traffic. Passive monitoring may collect statistics and watch over some important values, like traffic consumption, number of visitors etc. Also it is handy to analyze the real workflow on your site. However, only server-side errors could be caught. If case of broken Іnternet connection or other Internet-related errors, passive monitoring fails - as it shows only the server performance which is Ok. You'll notice the the lack of visitors, but this fact does not appear immediately. And this is the main difference between the Passive Monitoring (server-side) and Active Monitoring (third-party).

The global monitoring system is quite useful -
as most of my outages are really regional outages out of my control. It helps to know this.

Availability Availability of a site shows if a site is accessible from the Internet.

Availability of a site shows if a site is accessible from the Internet. This term is also about access to a server, database or another entity. As all objects in the Internet are based on comlicated infrastructure, nothing can be available always. The question is how to measure it, what is normal and if we may affect it anyway. The measurement of availability is connected to terms Uptime and Downtime, which show for how long a site is unavailable. However, these values can not create the full view of the situation. There could be many reasons of unavailability - server or connection problems, application error, overload of the site and so on. To avoid or shorter the failures, it is needed to supervise the site and analyze the errors, if they happen. For these purposes there are special monitoring tools, which help to increase to availability of the site, collect statistics and provide necessary information about the errors for fast repair. These tools are called Website Monitoring services.
