As part of our commitment to keep our customers’ systems up and running, safe and secure we’ve rolled out a new system monitoring platform based on Icinga.

Icinga is a free and open-source infrastructure monitoring platform that aggregates all monitoring and alerts across our entire estate in one convenient portal. Chosen for its maturity and wide range of monitoring options, NewRedo is in the best position to look after customers’ systems and keep them working.

We have configured the system to monitor the following and alert us if anything looks wrong:

  • Ping check to ensure the system is running.
  • HTTPS certificate expiration.
  • Website up-time.
  • Up-time of essential services.
  • Free disk space.
  • Free memory.
  • CPU load.
  • IO load.
  • Unusual system logging.
  • Firewall configuration.
  • Available software updates.

Thanks to this state of the art monitoring solution we know about potential issues with our customers systems before they do.
