This page allows you to have an overview of your server state and useful information such as:

  • Abuse contact
  • Network configuration
  • Failover IP management
  • Virtual mac
  • Reverse DNS
  • Monitoring options
  • Server location

Once your server is installed, we recommend to activate the monitoring of your server. It enables to receive an email or a SMS notification as soon as the selected service does not respond anymore. Choose from SSH, HTTP, HTTPS, PING, RDesktop, IMAP, FTP, DNS, POP, SMTP and SSH on the default port. Make sure the ports needed are opened to our monitoring equipment.

More details can be found here: Monitoring

If you want to restart the server, please do so via the restart button.It allows our equipment to monitor the boot and updates to be made, if necessary.

You can also read our documentation about the iDRAC, iLO or KVM of your Server.

In case of an hardware problem with your server, you are able to swap the defective server directly from your console.

Stability problems

If there is a problem with the stability of your Dedibox, perform some server checks.

  • Check that your operating system is up to date and in “Stable” version
  • Check the use of your RAM dedibox via the command free -k. If there is massive use of the SWAP of your server, we recommend that you check the configuration of your software.
  • Run a server hardware diagnosis and check the log files of your server.
  • If the hardware diagnosis reveals no defect, we advise you to complete this test with memtest: stop all running programs on your dedibox then launch the software memtest with parameters all 4 (if this does not pass, specify the free memory in a parameter)

Known problems with Debian unstable and Ubuntu dapper can make your dedibox crashes. Install a Dedibox Kernel to solve this problem.
