Host monitoring

Last Updated: Feb 06, 2018


  • Hybrid cloud monitoring solution

    CloudMonitor agent collects server monitoring data. You can install the agent on a non-ECS server to perform basic monitoring checks on the cloud and the premises.

  • Enterprise-level monitoring solution

    Host monitoring offers the application grouping feature. It allows you to allocate servers in different regions to the same group for server management from the business perspective. Moreover, it supports group-based alarm rule. You can configure only one alarm rule for the entire group. This helps to improve O&M efficiency and overall management experience.


  • Diverse monitor metrics

    Installing CloudMonitor agent in one step enables you to use more than 30 monitor metrics. Click Host monitoring metrics to view the monitoring metrics list.

  • Refined collection frequency

    Key monitoring metrics are collected every second. And, all the monitoring metrics are reported after every 15 seconds. This means, the minimum time interval between the data points in a monitoring chart is 15 seconds.

  • Service-level process monitoring

    The host monitoring service collects statistical data from the CPU and memory usage of active processes and the number of opened files. This helps you to get more information about server resource allocation. Click Process Monitoring for more information.

  • Application groups

    You can manage servers by group across regions and set alarm rules in the group dimensions. This can significantly reduces monitoring management cost.

  • Alarm rules service

    You can set alarm rules for monitoring metrics and send alarm notifications by SMS, email, and TradeManager.
