How does everyone monitor their Kaseya VSA to alert them as to when it is down? I know we can set up all kinds of alerts to manage other devices but how do we get an alert that our Kaseya server is down?
Monitor - Alerts - choose System from Select Alert Function and pop in your details.
A cloudy monitoring service such as http://nodeping.com/ would do the job - cheap, does SMS alerts, emails, Pushover etc...
Hey... thanks for all of the great suggestions! :-) Appreciate the response.
Uptimerobot, 50 free monitors and SMS, no isntalls
Believe it or not, in more than 3 years my K server has never gone down....we have it housed in a data center that has redundant power, internet etc. so the only reliability factors at play are our hardware (HP Proliant server), the OS & database (server 2008 R2 & SQL 2008 R2), and the VSA itself.
I find no need to monitor Kaseya - yes it IS just THAT reliable.
Alertra - cloud-based monitoring. Interesting to see the other ones people are using though.
i cant log into it ;)
