Librato Reviews

Servers are an important part of modern business, whether for a company's website, for data or even for an entire application's connectivity. Therefore, having complete control over a server is paramount. But sometimes there are server problems that are hard to track down, and many businesses are forced to turn to costly intervention from a third party. Librato hopes to change all that by putting the power of server monitoring in the hands of their clients. Their service allows businesses to view a real-time page of charts and analytics that detail every last bit of information about the running processes of a server. Librato has a demo of the service on their website that shows some of the impressive details that can be gleaned from a running server. The page shows the total number of connections to the server, the highest ping of those connections, data sizes, packets sent and received and a lot more. The data is kept on the site for about a year for review.
