Active Site Monitoring

ColdFusion MX 7 provides good fundamental information for monitoring site availability after you launch your site. But to get a true idea of how your site looks to the outside world, you should set up an active monitoring tool using another software product to collect information from outside your network. Most good ISPs and hosting providers offer some type of monitoring service, such as DeepMetrix's ipMonitor (www.deepmetrix.com).

If you are working on your own, however, I recommend using Mercury SiteScope, which provides a graphical dashboard of information enabling you to track and report server and site availability over days, weeks, and months. An evaluation copy of SiteScope is available at http://www.mercury.com/us/products/application-management/foundation/monitors/sitescope/. These types of reporting features are essential when you're analyzing trends to create a high-availability plan for your Web application.
