Nagios Alerts

Nagios is a system that is used to determine if your server is running or not. If your server is unreachable, the Nagios system will send you an instant email warning.

The warning will look something like this:

***** Nagios *****

Notification Type: PROBLEM
State: DOWN
CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds
Date/Time: Mon Jul 2 11:32:56 EDT 2012

If you receive one of these alerts, the first thing to do is to determine if your server is actually online or offline. If your server is offline, please open a ticket in your Customer Hub and one of our agents will respond to you within 15 minutes.

For all types of Classic Servers, please allow ping traffic from through your firewall.
