Pingdom Announces New Server Monitoring Capability

Pingdom is part of the SolarWinds family, and as such we are very excited to announce that SolarWinds has completed the acquisition of Scout’s SaaS-based server monitoring technology. The new service is now available under the Pingdom flag, marketed and sold as SolarWinds Pingdom Server Monitor.

This addition provides enhanced capabilities for our customers monitoring web applications or dynamic websites. When Pingdom alerts you that your site or application is slow/down, where do you go next? Pingdom Server Monitor gives you what you need to help you troubleshoot and resolve the issue, and, prevent it from happening again.

What can you do with Pingdom Server Monitor?

  • Get detailed visibility into OS-level metrics, like memory, disk usage, and network traffic.
  • Instrument architectural components up and down your web stack, from Apache to MongoDB to PostgreSQL to Zookeeper. See a full list of the 90+ Server Monitor plugins here.
  • Add custom metrics from any source via the industry-standard StatsD protocol.
  • See the bigger picture with custom dashboards, mixing and matching data from any of the Pingdom Server Monitor data sources.
  • When seconds matter, view live metrics streaming off your servers in real-time.
  • Get alerts before your site or application is affected. You can configure alerts for any of the thousands of metrics Pingdom Server Monitor collects. These early-warning alerts can help prevent downtime or degraded performance altogether.

Together with site checks and real user monitoring (RUM), Pingdom Server Monitor gives you more insight, deeper metrics, and end-to-end troubleshooting capability.
