Okay, you got your VPS setup and completed the installation and configuration of the services. Without any tools to help you monitor your VPS, you will never know why your VPS services go down and when it goes down. Monitoring tools can be categorized to be either internal and external monitoring tools. Internal monitoring tools are to be installed on the same VPS or reside on the same network as your VPS is installed while external monitoring is to be executed the check outside your VPS network. You wanted to know how well these services are performing. This is needed so that you will know if an upgrade of resources is required to cater for the demand to ensure your website continues to loads smoothly or fine tune is required. Monitoring the database services such as MySQL allows you to know how much of MySQL queries you are processing and if a fine tune is needed if the application is slowing down. You wanted to also monitor your mail server queue in the event of any spam outbreak that could have jammed up your mail server queue that will, in turn, cause your mail server to be blacklisted on any major RBL spam listing that will affect your email delivery. A couple of Free monitoring applications are available on the market that allows you to install on your VPS server for this type of monitoring.
