                We use Nagios to monitor our stack and alert us when problems arise. Nagios allows us to monitor every aspect of each of our servers such as running processes, CPU usage, disk usage, and more. This means that as soon as problems arise, we can detect them and call out an engineer to resolve the issues as soon as possible.
