I'm running Apache, and I need to be able to run some kind of monitoring software so I can tell when the Server dies. When the server (Apache) dies I can still FTP, Telnet and Ping the server, BUT the web page will not displayed.

I guess I'd need some type of browser that I could modify to do the "look up" on a timed schedule, then notify me when it failed...

Apache has an option for monitoring server activities (is called httpd_monitor). What version of Apache did you use? My version is 1.1.3 and never dies. Maybe you have so many accesses on your web and must start multiple instances of Apache.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

There is a program called BigBrother that is also very helpful. It can be configured to page and/or email you if any daemons go down. It can be found at http://www.iti.qc.ca/iti/users/sean/bb-dnld/
