Network Monitoring is now Online

As of July 02, 2024, the server statuses for my projects are now available with the goal of eliminating unnecessary downtime.

Keeping the Connection Alive

It all began when I started playing around with Uptime Robot on my phone. I realized that, in order to give myself peace of mind, I must proactively monitor my projects to log uptime information. I found a project on Github that allows Developers to run their own local monitoring service, built to replicate Uptime Robot. Setting up this service for myself was too easy to pass up.

The next important step was finding a host for my network monitor that wasn’t on my server. After all, if the server went down, so too, would the monitoring service. That’s when I discovered a Pay-as-you-go Tier hosting package from fly.io.

Downtime is Inevitable

There will be times when services are down, usually during upgrades or maintenance, but my mission is to shave off every second of downtime that I am able to.

I believe it is a best practice to treat my projects as mission-critical. You can view the server status at any time. A link is also available in the footer of every page.
