Monitoring Features

HitMyServer was developed from years of experience doing development and system administration.


We offer many different types of monitors. Each monitor can be configured with their own set of notifications. Use our pull monitors to ensure your servers are up and returning the right content and use our push monitors to get more intimate details about your server.

Pull Monitors

Pull monitors are checks we perform from our servers that connect to yours. We currently offer the following pull monitors.

  • Ping
  • Port Check
  • HTTP Status Code
  • HTTP MD5 Body Matching
  • HTTP Body Contains String
  • SSL Certificate Expiration Check

Push Monitors

Push monitors are checks performed at your server and sent to us. To use our push monitors upgrade to a paid account today! Read more about these monitors.

  • Beanstalkd Queue Size
  • Disk Space
  • Heartbeat
  • Server Load
  • Sendmail Queue Size


Getting notified when trouble flares up is the problem we solve here. We offer multiple of notifications. Use notification templates to apply multiple notifications to new monitors.

Receive an email from us when a monitor status changes.
We can send an SMS to your mobile phone to alert you right away.
Phone Calls
Are you like us and receive tons of email each night? Put your phone is do not disturb mode and white list our phone number. Then when you hit trouble our phone call will come through while the rest is silenced.
Slack Chat Webhook
We are fans of Slack. If you are too, setup a webhook in slack and will can post messages to your channel notifying everybody.
Are you a developer? Do none of these other notifications work for you? You can setup your own webhook notification.


There are multiple things you want to monitor on server. Is Apache or Nginx running? How about SSH? By creating monitors inside "servers" you can easily see when a server is having troubles.


By creating groups you can segment your servers any way you like. Separate your east coast servers from your west coast. Are you running instances on Digital Ocean and Amazon Web Services? Separate those out. Groups allow you to quickly toggle and view the status of only servers in that group.

Multiple Users

Servers and monitors are stored per account and not user. This allows you to invite multiple users to your account and share the statistics. You can control whether a user has read or read/write permissions.

Easy Indicators

Servers that are 100% up are green. Servers that have one or more monitors down have a red background and increased font size. Don't worry about needing to constantly update the dashboard. We handle that for you and do it every 90 seconds.
