Website Monitoring Help

Mabuhay! in Filipino, means Greetings!,

I am currently finding solutions in monitoring websites without installing something on the end but remotely. Let's say through TCP ports 80,443.. etc. I've searched some help and I see an appliance that can monitor IT infra, production infra, and environmental infra.

But focusing on website monitoring, the appliance requires advance http knowledge in order to go into deep, by knowing and configuring the parameters or strings needed. Given that there are lots of open source or even paid applications like PRTG, Google, etc. But I'm thinking if i want to make my own tool, I need the parameters needed to know and understand the behavior of the website.

Currently I need to monitor the traffic that people are making from the website. The bandwidth and number of hits, like webalizer.

So if anyone knows and a geek to web/http thing, please do share.

Thanks and more power!

Hello there, and welcome to Geeks to Go! :thumbsup:

I'm sorry it has taken a while to get to you. I hope I can still give my insight on this topic.

I see you want to create your own monitoring tool for web traffic. That's a pretty big thing, and considering there are a lot of open source solutions out there I'd say it would be reinventing the wheel. I'd settle with one of the open source alternatives like Open Web Analytics.
