Linux Network, System, and Server Monitoring

Speed and optimize Linux performance monitoring

Free Trial Circonus Sandbox

Circonus’ Linux monitoring provides metrics, visualizations, and alerting to empower engineers to better understand their Linux systems. Our Linux monitoring dashboard collects and graphs more metrics than any other available solution, so users can more efficiently and accurately monitor their Linux network and servers and diagnose and resolve issues.

“We recently had an issue with one of our services suffering latencies. We were able to quickly identify several issues, like memory leaks, because we were collecting all the telemetry around that service and alerting on latency. To be able to find that quickly and resolve that issue to ensure that the users engaging with that service were not impacted is a big deal.”

Set up Linux monitoring with ease

  • Get started quickly by deploying the Circonus Unified Agent – a single collection agent that consolidates all host and services monitoring. Simply download and extract the appropriate release on your server, and the single configuration file automatically activates the default plug-ins, which include: CPU; Disk; Memory; Network; and Swap. No editing is required to get started, but the agent is easy to configure if needed, with examples in the configuration file.
  • Run a single command, and the agent will automatically connect to Circonus and metrics will begin flowing. The CUA-driven Linux dashboard is a system-wide performance dashboard with no extra setup required., allowing users to quickly understand the performance of your systems, services, applications and network.

Resolve issues faster with real-time Linux network and system monitoring metrics

  • The Linux monitoring dashboard displays 350-500 metrics (and more data can be collected and stored in our time-series database, IRONdb). It includes a “summary” tab for an overview of your server, as well as multiple in-depth tabs that each group related telemetry metrics for digging deeper into CPU, Memory, Disk, and Network performance. All graphs stream new values in real-time every minute.
  • Once your Linux server metrics begin flowing into Circonus, users can add alerting for key metrics. Add rulesets for when to issue alerts, such as absence alerts, threshold alerts, and group alerts, which allow you to use pattern-based rulesets to cover all hosts with a single group of rulesets.
  • Easily manage alerts and notifications with alerting integrations such as Pager Duty, Victorops, and Opsgenie, as well as Slack, email, SMS, webhooks, and more.
  • Find disruptions and concentrations, bottlenecks, errors, latencies, and extreme system loads or drop-offs— all in real time.

Leverage advanced analytics to gain deeper insights and improve customer experiences

  • Review past performance for more accurate capacity planning and view long-term trends using historical data.
  • Use histograms to collect all source data, so you can calculate arbitrary and inverse latency percentiles on-demand and manage SLOs and error budgets.
  • Leverage histograms to visualize real-time and historical latency data to determine SLO compliance.
  • Create customized and powerful queries using the Circonus Analytics Query Language (CAQL), which enables users to analyze years of data quickly and easily.

Get the flexibility and scale you need

  • Ingest trillions of measurements per second in real-time with unlimited scale and unlimited retention, and of metric data.
  • Track billions of infrastructure metrics out-of-the-box. Slice-and-dice complex infrastructure metrics easily with tag-based search and analytics.
  • Collect, visualize, and alert on any metric data from any application and system in real time, including availability, response times, reliability, error rates, and throughput.
