    I supposedly saw some info (don't remember where) that
    if there's used disk space > 90% of all disk space then Centmin Mod will send email alert to root.

    Is this true? And which part of Centmid Mod do this job (maybe it's CSF)?

    Also I install linfo add-on but there's no any alert mechanisms in it. There's sysstat installs with Centmin Mod but AFAIK sysstat and even hddtemp don't give us any alert capabilities.

    So which tools you use to automatically monitor your centmin mod servers for disk space, load average, etc is in allowable thresholds ?

    @Matt has posted his pushover script which is probably what you want.

    But yes there's a disk space alert script included in Centmin Mod, see FAQ [HASHTAG]#22[/HASHTAG] at http://centminmod.com/faq.html

    code on Github https://github.com/centminmod/centminmod/blob/123.07beta21/cron/diskalert

    probably no one hits there disk space quota that often to use this heh

    For monitoring I use

    For DNSMadeEasy customers, you can also try the Beta version of http://www.constellix.com/

    I've been using it since they announced it.

    Oh I didn't know they had closed it off. I must have been pretty quick at signing up for it.

    I tried logging in and it seems I can log in to https://sonar.constellix.com/login .. wonder if that means I am a beta user now ?

    few forums are discussing this and how Solar Winds might be a bad thing.. have no experience with them myself.

    I'm still using the free plan of pingdom for over a year already and they always detect when my site is down very quick (usually when I have some maintenance on the server :) ).

    We are in the process of rolling out Solar Winds globally at work for our monitoring. We are SNMP polling around 11,000 devices so far, with a load more to add in.

    That's one big roll out. Interesting to see what Solar Winds will bring to Pingdom.
