    Free account offers two domains monitoring but you can:

    1)share on twitter +1
    2)share on facebook +1
    3)Follow on twitter +1
    4)Invite 5 friends by email to register +5
    5)Back link them +2
    6)Create a post for them +4

    So you can get easy 16 domains free monitoring every minute :)

    And it is for me the most accurate for alerts as for two years now i didn't get any false alarm :)

    Just started using Application Performance Management & Server Monitoring | AppOptics on my main Linode Box.. We'll see how it goes, so far so good.

    After seeing the stats post from @deltahf and his MariaDB issue, it's a great tool to have!

    I still have UptimeRobot running with success, so far so good.

    Since NixStats went paid, I've stopped using it for now. It was a good service though.

    ..and the APM is extra. So, $20/month for both. Ouch!

    Yeah, it pays for itself when you're trying to diagnose a problem, though! :D

    It's also the cheapest PHP APM that I've found.

    I started appoptics too. Looking good.
    It's just for two weeks. 14 trial.

    Which stats should I especially look at if I want to have faster vps?

    Check the "Response Time Breakdown" in your APM Service Overview page. Here's what mine looks like on a Centminmod dedicated server running a large WordPress/XenForo site (4,500 WP posts, 11.9 million XF posts, ~150k daily page views).

    Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 11.45.31 AM.png

    As you can see, the sections of the graph show how much time each service contributes to your page load time. For me, it's PHP-FPM which consumes the overwhelming majority of the time. This is "normal", but to be honest I really don't know if it's a good time or one which can practically be improved upon with WordPress/XenForo.

    If I wanted to optimize my server further, though, this graph shows me PHP-FPM is the first place I would look for gains.

    Usually anything under 200ms for PHP is good as it depends also on your traffic and server hardware/configuration setup.

    This is Centmin Mod community forum on NewRelic APM monitoring last 24hrs - yeah still have free access heh. Low because also my traffic is alot lower than yours too.
