I had DataSnitch running for months, but to be honest I think I’m quite low both on confidence and motivation. I’m not a coder, so the underlying code has been acquired, but I believe I’m really good managing servers and infrastructure.
DataSnitch monitors your site on many different ways, from simple ICMP up to content checks. It’s not only useful to measure latency or availability from different parts of the world, but also to check if your site contents have changed overnight (even the JS or CSS files). In case your site is compromised and someone injected malicious code, you’ll know before your customers know.
I would also like to offer my services as a sysadmin and infrastructure consultant to other startups. I’ve got a full time job, but a lot of free time after that
