RansomIT – $48/year 256MB KVM and more in Adelaide and Sydney, Australia

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: April 23, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

Oliver, from RansomIT, created these four special offers for servers in Adelaide and Sydney (both in Australia) exclusively for LowEndBox.com! While there usually is a $20 setup fee, it has been waived for these offers. The coupon code to remove the setup fee can be found below the offers. Ransom IT has been trading as a discretionary trading trust since June 2008 (link) and have been featuring on LowEndBox since early 2012. Ransom IT started offering KVM VPS over a year ago and has since expanded to Sydney. Recently, even more hardware was deployed in Sydney, which created enough room to make these offers. Their servers are using either E3-1240v2, E5-2603, E5-2620 or Opteron 4274HE CPUs along with several disks in RAID1 or RAID10.  The bandwidth in Sydney comes with free Black Lotus DDoS protection. These offers are limited to one per customer; all prices include GST which cannot be waived. Reviews of Ransom IT are positive and I can personally tell you that their servers and their service are simply awesome. Feel free to share your experiences with Ransom IT either in the comments here or at LowEndTalk.com!

Rackburst’s aim is to provide low-cost, affordable, fast OpenVZ VPS, whereas Evorack will maintain its focus on Xen. This offer is hosted on modern hardware, using Intel Xeon CPUs and RAID10 disk arrays. Rackburst staff have flown into Frankfurt to set all this up, which is good to know.

Observing devices with Observium – Adding a device

Tags: Date/Time: April 5, 2014 @ 7:30 pm, by Maarten Kossen

lowendtutorial

Last week I’ve introduced you to Observium and shown you how to install it. This week, it’s time to add devices to Observium. In order to add a device to Observium, the device must support SNMP/have SNMP software installed. SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol and is a protocol that was designed for monitoring and management purposes for network-connected devices. It’s quite a simple protocol but very powerful, mainly because so many devices understand it (servers, switches, printers, routers, etc.).

On Ubuntu and CentOS a tool called SNMPd is used to listen to, and answer to, requests over the SNMP protocol.  I’m going to show you how to install the this tool in both Ubuntu and CentOS. After that, I’m going to show you how to add those devices to your Observium installation.
