best practice for monitoring apache/webserver

Hi folks, I noticed that there are a few different ways you can monitor a web server (apache) for downtime.  I'm not sure what's the best practice, so I appreciate any feedback.  So let's say you want to monitor for Apache for failure, and set an IT automation for "start." For example you can:

  1. Set up a Website monitor
  2. Set up a Server monitor
  3. Set up a Server monitor  >> and target the apache process
  4. Set up a Server monitor >> and target the apache plugin

Is any one method better than another since they all support the same thresholds and IT automation support.

Thanks! Kris

The best way to do this is by using Site24x7 Process Monitoring. First, add the Apache process for monitoring and then set up an IT Automation server script to automatically start the process and map/associate it to the corresponding process. This will start the process whenever it goes DOWN.

If you find any trouble in configuring the setup, feel free to drop a comment below.
