Server Monitoring Instead Of Switching Hosting Rate Topic   - - - - -


Posted 02 August 2018 - 06:45 AM #1

Don't want to leave your hosting but want to use more services from other providers? Want to delegate a part of your work to pros to release time for business? Server monitoring is one of those services you are looking for.


Any Web application is constantly changing. Inside (new functions and technologies), and in terms of external conditions (size and activity of the audience). The quality of the application depends critically on correct and timely diagnosis. The dynamics of Web applications translates the diagnostics to a new one – a constant level. It is important not just to know the maximum about the system, but also to learn about the changes as quickly as possible. This is a monitoring task.
There are three main components of the monitoring system:
  1. Status monitoring. Check the operation status of the components.
  2. Monitoring of trends. Collect changes in indicators and their subsequent analytics.
  3. Business monitoring. Observation of deviations in business indicators.

Are you or your team doing the monitoring the right way?

You forgot some important steps :)
Step #1. Purchase a new web host
+ 1-a. Build the infrastructure, set up server software (web server, database server, application server), etc.
+ 1-b. Setup monitoring and backup system.
+ 1-c. LDAP, etc.
Step #2. Back up your sites to the new web host
+ 2-a. Make a test migration, check the website operation by making changes to the hosts file and using API keys for development (external services).
+ 2-b. Create a proxy to the old server on the new one for the period of time you will be changing DNS, and they will sync for the whole world, so you don't lose your customers.
+ 2-c. After DNS syncing(12-24h), make the final migration (database records, files) and terminate proxy for the old server.

Step #3. Final Check Before Making the Move
3-a) Check for missing links
3- B) Repairing site navigation with .htaccess
3-c) Database errors


+ 3-d. Check the backups system and disaster recovery process.
+ 3-e. Enable extended monitoring.
+ 3-f. Check user journey (for search, purchase, etc.).
+ Step #4. Monitor website and server 24/7
