What does 2023 promise for the IT world?

While there’s no telling what kinds of innovations we’ll witness, one thing is sure: with the new year comes cloud network monitoring, and Domotz users already see the benefits! 

Cloud Network Monitoring is a process of monitoring and managing cloud-based networks’ performance, availability, and security. For instance, it tracks network performance and usage data in real time to identify potential issues, reduce downtime, and optimize network performance.

Domotz integrates with Cloud Network Monitoring

In the last quarter of 2022, Domotz has been busy. We have recently developed new applications in this area, offering centralized and efficient solutions for monitoring and managing networks.

Here are a few exciting Cloud and Application Monitoring integrations you can use right now.

  1. NGINX
  2. Apache
  3. Kubernetes
  4. pfSense
  5. FreeBSD 
  6. Redis
  7. Website content monitoring
  8. SSL certificate monitoring
  9. Docker
  10. MySQL 


Firstly, Domotz Nginx Monitoring Tool benefits you from proactive monitoring, so tracking your web servers’ health is a breeze.

Our service uses HTTP and SSH protocols to connect to any Nginx instance securely. From there, it extracts a range of variables to reveal active connections, requests, tasks, and performance stats, such as CPU usage. No more black-box networking!

Like all our offerings, this is a truly seamless integration. Secondly, Domotz delivers automated insights without impacting your server’s performance or requiring complex configuration processes. In short, it’s the perfect complement to Nginx‘s easy-to-use, flexible approach. Learn more about setting up the NGINX monitoring integration.

2. Apache

Apache is the world’s most popular web server, so there are a million ways to administer it. Domotz makes it painless to build a stronger foundation for effective Apache HTTP Server monitoring. We’ve covered the fundamentals with our Apache Monitoring Tool so that you don’t have to worry about the details. 

In other words, with our easy integration, you can instantly gauge the amount and duration of requests received at any time. Want to scan Apache’s mod_status output for changes in performance or traffic levels, set alerts, or audit your configuration settings to ensure an optimal setup? It’s as simple as creating a custom driver. Learn more about setting up the Apache monitoring integration.

3. Kubernetes

Kubernetes is the de-facto standard for open-source container orchestration, but it can be challenging to wrangle. From configuring nodes to monitoring usage and uptime, K8s users have their work cut out. 

We’re super excited to announce a new  Kubernetes monitoring Tool. Our custom integration let you review and adjust performance at the node, pod, or cluster level. 

The first thing to remember is that working in the cloud shouldn’t mean dealing with blind spots, so stop settling for opaque clusters. 

Whether you want to investigate performance at the Goroutine or thread level, zero in on TLS handshake errors and request authentications, Domotz lets you tackle it all from a single panel view and export the data for simplified reporting! Do more with K8s. Try one of our Kubernetes monitoring integration by building your dynamic metrics and responsive feedback features.

4. pfSense

pfSense is a free, open-source firewall and router OS. It’s based on the FreeBSD operating system but includes its kernel. The name comes from the fact that it uses the PF firewalling software.

There are many advantages to using pfSense, including, for instance:

  • Ease of use
  • Flexibility
  • Community support

You can read about the advantages of using pfSense Monitoring Tool on our blog.

If you need a way to monitor your pfSense instance, you can easily do this with Domotz for an affordable monthly cost with no long-term commitment or subscription. Learn more about setting up the pfSense monitoring integration.

5. FreeBSD

FreeBSD is an open-source Unix-like operating system that powers modern servers, desktops, and embedded platforms. It has a robust architecture and performance capabilities and is strong on data protection. On top of that, FreeBSD runs on a wide range of architectures and being open-source, it’s also license free.

Our FreeBSD monitoring leverages our custom Integration functionality, allowing you to monitor the pfSense process and the processes running on the FreeBSD server. It helps you proactively monitor system status, ingress/egress statistics, and more. 

Last but not least, FreeBSD it’s a favorite product of Netflix, WhatsApp, IBM, and many more. Learn more about setting up the FreeBSD monitoring integration.

6. Redis

Remote Dictionary Server (Redis) is an in-memory data structure store. It’s commonly used as a database, streamlining engine, caching, and message broker. It supports a wide range of data structures, for instance, strings, hashes, lists, and sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyper logs, geospatial indexes, and streams. Redis is known for its speed, flexibility, and scalability, which makes it a popular choice for gaming leaderboards, machine learning, real-time analytics, and more.

Our Domotz Redis monitoring tool helps you manage your Redis system through Domotz. Take a look at some of the operations you can perform:

  • Check replication, keyspace, cluster, and clients on your Redis server
  • Extract configuration, resource consumption, cluster definition, replication statistics, related client information, and more.
  • Extract relevant statistics from your Redis server

Learn more about setting up the Redis monitoring integration.

7. Website Content Monitoring

Website content monitoring is performing regular checks to monitor your website’s uptime, security, and performance. 

Use website content monitoring for:

  • Monitor web performance
  • Track unusual behavior
  • Get insights

In short, Domotz allows you to proactively monitor the content and response time of any content on your website and HTML, JSON, and PHP website pages. Users can use the generic HTTP content monitoring driver to enable the custom integration for generic HTTP/HTTPS-based content monitoring. 

As a result, website content monitoring can help your customers maintain a professional appearance online and safeguard their website visitors against potentially harmful issues.

8. SSL Certificate Monitoring

It’s hard to keep looking forward when you’re constantly dodging security pitfalls, so why not get ahead of the game? Domotz tool gives you fine-grained insights into the protocols that define your security stance, with SSL and TLS monitoring specifically engineered to broaden your perspective.

Our custom integration lets you simultaneously watch over multiple assets from a single dashboard. Instead of taking your security practices for granted, which you should never do, you can investigate, audit, and trace certificates for different websites, issuers, and devices via a comprehensive top-down view. Check out the driver examples for SSL certificate monitoring to take back control of how you do security. Learn more about setting up the SSL/TLS Certificate monitoring integration.

9. Docker

Docker is an application that helps you build, test, run, and share modern applications. 

Domotz helps you monitor the performance of every Docker container running on your Docker engine. Furthermore, our custom integration functionality enables you to monitor statistics from your Docker system, such as statuses, counters, hardware resource usage, images, and more. In addition, you can use Domotz to troubleshoot performance issues and analyze the health of your Docker containers.

Use Docker and Domotz to monitor any Docker container and images on your instances easily.

10. MySQL

Last but not least, we integrated with MySQL. MySQL is the most popular open-source system. It enables customers to run OLTP, OLAP, and machine learning workloads directly from their MySQL Database.

Our custom integration functionality allows you to:

  • Monitor MySQL server hosted from a Linux machine 
  • Easily record MySQL ey metrics
  • Monitor the service status and version
