Monitoring with Monit + Argos

Argos is a monitoring and notification relay engine for apnscp. It provides enhanced monitoring for Monit, which is a lightweight, proactive monitoring service for Linux. Monit relays service alerts through Argos, which can use one of several backends including Pushover, XMPP, Slack, and webhooks to relay notifications. We recommend pairing Argos with Pushover to receive alerts on your phone, but any backend works with varying levels of features. Pushover includes quiet hours and user interaction for major events, such as maxing out storage or a database outage.
