Server uptime and resource monitoring are a crucial part of the service that we provide. It helps to detect issues before they come serious problems, give our clients peace of mind and reduce the number of hours we spend fixing things. We shopped around and found a number of great SaaS products but all came with high recurring costs. There are also data protection issues surrounding their use, and a general feeling that we’d be a small fish in their large ocean when it came to feature requests.
I’m glad that we found Amon. It works great, is easy to set up and the monitoring/alerting is on par with the best SaaS products at a tiny fraction of the price. We control everything so the data protection issues are much less significant. It fits nicely into our workflow with its web hook and plugin functionality, and Martin has been extremely helpful with support and feature requests. Overall, I would recommend Amon to anyone looking for a monitoring solution that they control.
Here at Sharpstream we have always been looking for new ways to monitor our vast array of servers. We currently use Amon to keep an eye on usage stats for our servers and also on a specific process level.
We have tried using techniques such as SNMP and SSH as ways to monitor to servers but always seen errors with software unable to keep up and found servers not showing every metric every minute. I came across Amon and liked the fact it was a simple module to install on the server which reports all of the required metrics direct to the monitoring server. I am also keen to look further into their modules for apache and nginx which will enable us to monitor even more data and enhance our monitoring further.
I have found their support to be excellent and they have always been open to improvements we thought would be helpful for our specific requirements. Updates are very regular including new features such as the remote execution that looks very interesting as we have always wanted to easily manage our servers through automating scripts.
I was using zabbix and one day after wasting a lot of time make some minor changes to it I started looking to what alternatives are out there. I found Amon and it caught my eye immediately with it's simplicity and ease of use. I started to use it mainly as a test but after a few months I already started using it as the main monitoring system for the system I manage.
Martin always resolves any bug I might find and pushes an update asap, also he already implemented several suggestions I made to improve Amon.
