|Aesir On Guard||
Would you like to be notified if a computer you are managing
becomes unavailable? Do you need detailed information about
the web server that your business home pages is on?
Have you ever had a suspicion that one of
your services such as a WWW server might be dropping connections,
slow to answer incoming queries, under attack by denial of service
attacks, or worse unavailable to legitimate requests? Or, would you
like to have a monthly report detailing these daily connection
patterns so that you can plan to add additional bandwidth or servers?
On Guard can give you answers to these questions and
its detailed monthly reports
can help you spot and correct performance problems before they become
an issue. Here is a sample monthly
from On Guard.
|What is Aesir On Guard?||
Aesir On Guard is a watchdog monitoring service
designed for those who need
reliability information about their web site or service.
Simply supply us with a URL or any tcp/udp service which
you would like
monitored. After a consultation with our operations staff, we
chose the most appropriate monitoring probe and time interval for your
particular service. Our computers at the MAE-East+ NAP then run these
probes to your computer at the agreed upon time interval. These probes
will measure the following information about your site.

|What safeguards are in place to prevent false notification?||
Aesir Computing, Inc services are directly connected at the
MAE-East+ NAP, this eliminates problems
with upstream internet service provider outages effecting our
and notification computers are located on
different computers so that in the event of a network problem with our
computers which perform the probes, these computers will not receive false
readings. Finally, we use an adaptive retry algorithm to prevent
temporary factors such as router flap or route dampening algorithms from
interfering with our measurements. We also set thresholds of how often
you will be notified in a cycle so that failed repairs don't result in
endless notifications. Our 24X7X365 NOC (network
operations center) staff is available at all times
tracking your computers.
|Are there security issues relating to this service?||
Because we monitor the actual service,
we do not require special protocols and holes to be opened in your
firewall. If you have a public service, we can monitor it and not
affect your existing firewall policies.
$20/month first url, $10/month additional URL's.
A 1 year or 6 month prepaid contract is required to initiate service. We will refund any remaining balance if you decide to discontinue service before the contract has completed. A 30 day notification is required to disconnect this service.
