Response Time Monitoring
Response time monitoring Response time monitoring is testing how fast is your site.

Response time monitoring is testing how fast is your site. It might be accessible, but bad performance can still make it unattractive for the clients. The monitoring of the response time allows you to check how the site acts as the time goes on. Do any of the scheduled tasks, like backup, updates etc affect the performance? Does the site works well for the whole world, or some regions of interest could meet a confusing delay?

HostTracker provides a possibility to check the reaction of your site. Select Response time check on the main screen:

Create ContentCheck Task

Then, select the largest satisfactory response time for the site. Is this value is exceeded, you receive a notification. Also, all the statistics is stored in the check log, and response graph is generated. You may check this data at anytime.

NOTE! Response time depends on the distance between the datacenter of your site and our checking server. It might be large enough for a remote country. To decrease this effect, select a checking region in advanced options.

HostTracker offers numerous simple-yet-powerful instruments to keep your website running smoothly. That implies it delivers deep insight into server resource parameters such as CPU, RAM and HDD. How does it work? Starting at collecting statistics, cloud-based service lets you know at once about CPU, memory and disk space usage issues and provides the way to speed up your server performance. Read on to find out more about “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD” tool, and why you should adopt it.

Who are your neighbours?

Nowadays there are many services and tools around that can help with all sorts of server issues. For Windows and * Nix you can find special scripts that are very easily installed. However, the sets may vary depending on the server configuration. For example, if your server doesn’t support some basic functions, one way to deal with this - to create a script based on the tools provided, which will convert the data output in a specific format for further system manipulation.

But let’s not forget about server virtualization. Virtual hosting has been into trend for a couple of years and boasts numerous advantages over resource management. If this is your thing, then “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD” function from HostTracker will definitely come in handy for you.

Sometimes it can be hundreds of different websites simultaneously hosted on a single server. Therefore, server may get easily overloaded or stop working properly. With “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD”, you’ll be able to strengthen your server performance against some common causes of overload and spot out your “load hungry” neighbours. It’s worth noting - one of the biggest drawbacks of shared hosting is that your server IP can end up being blacklisted due to the dynamic allocation. In essence, if your neighbour’s IP from your IP block is currently suspected of hosting illegal content, your IP address can get into a blacklist as well. That’s why it’s crucial to keep a constant watch over bad neighbours to ensure that your business reputation is safe.

Rapid increase in the CPU load, memory and disk space usage may indicate that your web server has been infected. "Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD" can help you in this regard and protect the security of your resources.

User-friendly interface and other advantages

With our user-friendly and responsive interface all information about your server performance and settings is a stone’s throw from you. Therefore, for example, the needed script should be downloaded and run once only by the responsible administrator, subsequently - all actions can be specified using HostTracker’s account. Moreover, our cloud-based website monitoring service provides a wealth of different checks to choose, from HTTP and Ping tests, to database and server  parameters checks - all these let you gather the most complete information about your resource performance for further thorough and accurate analysis.

Additionally, HostTracker has a wide variety of notification types to offer ranging from Viber to Telegram. It also provides the ways to customize your own group of contacts for notification as well as pinpoint short outages. As regards statistics – it is available anytime you want:

In particular, the screenshot illustrates that the server CPU load hasn’t exceeded a specified threshold of 90% during the day. However, the value of this parameter has fluctuated over the period. It shows that, most of the website visits are during the day, that’s why the CPU level is lower at night.

API and Post-requests are up for grabs too - you can freely set the automatic server reboot, cache clearing etc.

We are always open to new ideas and suggestions whether relating to existing instruments, or submitted by technically-minded and creative people.

Ключевые советы для поддержания работы сайта (Русский)
  • Оптимизируйте контент сайта. Максимально возможное сжатие изображений, до последнего килобайта, позволяющее сохранить качество изображения.
  • Используйте Minify (приложение PHP5) для CSS и JavaScript для сжатия веб-данных, и размещайте JavaScript в конце документа, если это возможно.
  • Добавьте заголовки «expires» для контента, чтобы избежать постоянной загрузки браузерами одних и тех же файлов при просмотре вашего веб-сайта пользователем.
  • Убедитесь, что ваш веб-сервер обеспечивает предоставление контента в сжатом состоянии - например, mod_deflate для Apache. Очевидно, что это правило не касается таких файлов, как изображения, которые уже сжаты, поэтому убедитесь, что вы задали все настройки правильно.
  • Уменьшите количество HTTP-запросов для попадания на ваш Веб-сайт. Совместите CSS в одном файле. Совместите JavaScripts в одном файле, где это возможно. Включайте эти файлы только в страницы, где они действительно необходимы.
  • Оптимизируйте систему управления контентом. Например, уменьшите количество обращений к базе данных, необходимое для каждого запроса страницы. В Drupal этого можно достичь всего лишь отключив ненужные модули. Кроме того, увеличьте эффективность всех пользовательских кодов, где это только возможно. Изменение на одной десятую долю секунды в алгоритме, который используется тысячи раз, будет заметным.
  • Поддерживайте кэширование часто используемых данных. Используйте Memcache или нечто подобное. Многие пакеты CMS поддерживают эту возможность, но будьте осторожны с динамическими характеристиками.
  • Уравняйте нагрузки веб-сервера.
  • Разделите базы данных для чтения/записи, так что обеспечит иерархическую структуру баз данных, делая их благодаря этому размерно варьируемыми.
  • При возможности, разделите базу данных вертикально или горизонтально (или совместите эти направления, если эта модель подходит для структуры вашей базы данных) для нескольких серверов. Хотя это может подходить не для всех случаев.
