Server Status Monitoring
This could be a very useful app for all webmasters

 8:20 am on Apr 11, 2001 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to find a script or remotely hosted service that will:

1) Ping my server once every 5 mins and record whether it's up or down
2) Produce graphical stats of up/downtime daily, monthly and yearly
3) Preferably PHP/MySQL driven

I know there are things like netwhistle which is OK but I'm looking for something more sophisticated. ServerRat is less than useless but has the right idea.

I've trawled through the PHP resource index, Hotscripts etc but not found anything that fits the bill.

Does anyone out there know of such a service?

Have you looked at NetMechanic's monitoring service at [netmechanic.com...] ?

That looks pretty comprehensive but I was hopinng to find a free script that would just record downtime. We have a minimum of about 8 URLs to monitor which will grow as time goes on - could get quite expensive.

All of the better server monitors are either services or expensive scripts.

Hotscripts [hotscripts.com]

I've managed to get hold of a very simple script that pings the server at your specified URL and tells you whether it's up or not.

Surely it wouldn't be too difficult to modify it so that it pinged every 5 mins and recorded the result to a database? Then once I'd worked out how to do that I could use the info to generate pretty little graphs.

All I need to do now is learn PHP and MySQL. How difficult can it be.

Are there any budding PHP programmers out there that fancy a project like this?
