Server Density – Easy Server Monitoring

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon EC2, Developer Tools |

The Server Density monitoring service now supports Amazon EC2 using data collected and made available via Amazon CloudWatch and an optional lightweight monitoring agent.

Provided as a fully managed hosting service, Server Density can provide a snapshot of server status at any time. Alerts can be triggered from any of the metrics and can be delivered via cell phone (SMS), email, or iPhone. All of the data can be graphed, and a “tactical overview” dashboard provides a quick look at the latest monitored values for each server under management. 

There’s a free level (one server and core metrics) and a full level (the whole nine yard) for $16 per server per month, with volume discounts available.
