    Hetrixtools feature set as an Uptime monitor has grown so thought I'd share some of the features they have. I have been using Hetrixtools for a while now thanks to the generous Hetrixtool sponsored account for Centmin Mod. They uptime and blacklist monitoring at their core but also domain name, nameserver and SSL certificate alerts and system stats monitoring via optional agent install :) My referral link Free Uptime Monitor & Blacklist Monitor- HetrixTools ;)

    You can add your server's IPs to blacklist monitor to alert you whenever any of your IPs end up in blacklist databases/SPAM databases etc - useful if you run your own mailserver etc

    also includes optional domain, nameserver and SSL certificate monitoring alert

    The user agent installed can also monitor service uptime and warn if a service goes down

    Code (Text):
    grep '^CheckServices' /etc/hetrixtools/hetrixtools_agent.sh
    CheckServices="nginx,mariadb,php-fpm,redis,csf,lfd,ssh"

    Setup to monitor my Cloudflare Argo Tunnel's cloudflared service too and warn for service downtime with a check every 5 mins

    Thank you for sharing this!

    Which free server monitoring solution would you recommend? This, nixstats, nodequery or some other service?

    If you use Cloudflare, their health checks are free. For 3rd party I use nodeping, nixstats, nodequery, hetrixtools, and uptimerobot. But you can discuss those in the thread at Sysadmin - monitoring and alert tools?

    This thread is for discussing Hetrixtools :)
