    I was wondering to know how can add all the services to being monitored by OVH:

    Not sure about what I should enter in server response? And port?
    I've already whitelisted OVH IPs, just need to add the services

    didn't see your thread and didn't even see OVH had that section for monitoring !

    Nothing in OVH Documentation Center — OVH Documentation 0.0.1 documentation help files either but looks pretty self explanatory so ports are ones for services you want to monitor i.e DNS, FTP, HTTP, IMAP, POP, SMTP, SSH and openTCP and response I suppose is ok or fail paired response for the service/port ?

    but do you really want to set them up to get OVH involved ?

    I suppose they won't change anything at software level since they don't support it, in case of a hardware issue they will start working on it without having to let them know first.

    yeah probably.. just thinking though if i am working on my server and deliberately stop nginx for a while, that would trigger the OVH monitor if you set it up for HTTP port 80 or HTTP(s) port 443 checks

    what if OVH's response is to reboot the server ?

    Good question, in that case, I guess they won't do a good job. Who restart a server if things get wrong? That doesn't fix anything o_O
