Server Monitoring Utility - Check For Specified Services

Under Consideration

if the server get the ping response on the ip only, or both.

- ability for the customer to decide if they want to receive the alerts by email, sms, or not.

- ability to setup different ping verification intervals : 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, etc...

- ability to setup port based monitoring like SSH 22 pop 110 intervals : 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, etc...



IP address which you wish to monitor. To add an IP address to the

device go to the View Device page and click on Add IP Assignment in the

orange action bar. Alternatively, you can click the 'edit' link and

specify any address you would like. Some monitors do not require an IP

address to function.


This is one of ICMP, DNS, TCP, or module

  • ICMP indicates a 'ping' or ICMP echo test
  • DNS indicates that a DNS query/resolution test is being monitored
  • TCP indicates that the monitor is using one of the Monitor Scripts. See 'Monitor Scripts' in Setup & Admin for details.
  • module indicates that a Device Module is being used



applicable for TCP monitors, this field shows the port being monitored

(for example, port 80 for an HTTP monitor, port 25 for an SMTP monitor)


Only applicable for TCP monitors, this field shows the Monitor Script being used.

Max Packet Loss


applicable for ICMP (ping) monitors, this is the maximum percentage

packet loss that the system can see while still regarding the device as

being 'up'. Increasing this value will make the monitor less sensitive

to network problems or the rate limiting of diagnostic traffic.

Notify Address


field contains an email address to notify when the device is not

responding. To specify multiple addresses you may separate them with


Notify Delay

This is how long the system will wait after the device first stops responding before sending out an initial notification.

Notify Interval

This is how long the system will wait before sending out successive email notifications, should a device remain down.

Notify Downstream Device Owners

blesta will notify the owners of child devices of this device in the event the monitor fails.

Notify When Monitor Comes Back Up

Select from the drop down to configure the following behavior:

  • Never: Never send a notifications when the monitor returns up from a down or warning state.
  • From Warn: Send a notification when the monitor returns up from a warning state.
  • From Down: Send a notification when then monitor returns up from a down state.
  • From Warn and Down: Send a notification when the monitor returns up from a warning or down state.



tab provides a free text field which can be used to provide

information/instructions to persons responding to a problem with the




tab allows you to configure constraints for device modules or 'one-off'

configurations for Monitor Scripts. For example, thebandwidth

monitoring device module allows alerts to be sent out basedon traffic

rates. The environmental monitoring module allowstemperature and

humidity alerts to be sent out.

Would be nice seeing servers monitoring and bandwidth monitoring tools in Blesta CRM. Could use Nagios and Zabbix, both open source to implement / build these features.
