Hey Graham,

I have been using monitis.com for a good while now. More for monitoring web pages then servers themselves. I have found them quite good. They have server monitoring as well but I haven't had time to set it up yet.

Hope it helps.

Hi, folks,

Any suggestions for a reliable monitoring service?

The people at Pingdom appear to spend all their time on their blog.  At least half of the alerts I get from them are false positives - though not always as hilarious as this one.
