Monitoring private storage
Private storage can be monitored using third-party monitoring systems such as Nagios or Zabbix.
HTTPS port accessibility
To check the HTTPS port accessibility:
Start your monitoring system and format your request in the following way:
curl -k <server_address>
curl -k https://eu.cloudbackup.management/
The response must be
403 Forbidden and the port must be taken by the Nginx service.
<html> <head> <title>403 Forbidden</title> </head> <body bgcolor="white"> <center><h1>403 Forbidden</h1></center> <hr><center>nginx/1.8.1</center> </body> </html>
Here are some other typical tasks:
- Monitor the amount of free space on your storage nodes
- Monitor running storage node services. The primary services are as follows: the Cloud Storage Controller, Nginx, Reporting Service and Web Remote Connection Gateway
Each monitoring system has its own templates to accomplish the tasks.
Data transfer statuses are monitored automatically. As a software-only customer, you are responsible for the file system integrity so that the uploaded data stay consistent.
