Watchdog is the predictive system-level vitals monitor that sends you and your team Essential Alerts™ that proactively notify you of all the hardware issues you need to know about. With Watchdog on your team, you won’t have to worry about the basic health metrics of your hardware, such as running out of disk space, CPU overload, or reaching ulimits — all problems that lead to downtime.
With Watchdog on your team, you will dramatically reduce or eliminate downtime, increase site reliability, and improve overall customer retention.
Watchdog is completely free forever because we know what it’s like to have to fight fires on call.
According to a Gartner Study published in 2014:http://blogs.gartner.com/andrew-lerner/2014/07/16/the-cost-of-downtime
Behind every site is a group of engineers working to keep it running.
With Watchdog on your team, we help keep your stack running with preemptive system vitals alerts so you can focus on your job — not on your problems.
Watchdog monitors ulimit, filesystems, CPU usage, memory usage, disk I/O, disk space, and long-running processes.
Once the agent is installed and Watchdog is enabled, upgrade to Lumberjack’s centralized logging simply by pressing a button — no further install or config required. That’s because Watchdog shares the same agent as Lumberjack. One install is all you need for both products.
Watchdog shares the same agent as Lumberjack, our AI-powered centralized log management tool. Leverage the same software for multiple monitoring solutions and cut down on the complexity of your setup.
All aspects of your hardware need to be proactively monitored in a business-level server setup. Watchdog monitors everything you need to make sure your servers run smoothly.
All your systems. All your disks. None of the risks.
Reduce alert fatigue with configurable notifications
Automatic setup means Essential Alerts™ for your entire stack are ready out of the box
Watchdog saves your DevOps team from basic but embarrassing problems.
Let Watchdog loose on your hardware by installing the Blue Matador smart agent and get proactive alerts on:
VM steal time
Watchdog is free forever because we want to help system admins get ahead of the firefighting curve.
Our founders spent years doing on-call DevOps monitoring, day and night.
We get the frustration of fighting fires all the time, always balancing the need to fix production, add more monitoring, and do more of the “real” DevOps work you were hired to do.
Watchdog runs entirely on your server. In fact, after installing the Blue Matador Smart Agent, your server detects hardware anomalies and generates the report metrics itself. And it does this with the amazingly low overhead that our Smart Agent provides (<2% CPU overhead, <2% memory usage, and 90% gzip compression).
Our service never sees any of your data. When your server detects an alert should be triggered, only non-identifying information is sent to our service to send the notification to you. All of the data used in anomaly detection stays on your server the entire time and is non user-identifiable. This also means that Watchdog works well with HIPAA compliance.

Blue Matador is the first DevOps monitoring platform to combine all your monitoring tools under one place so you can focus on preventing downtime, not fighting fires.
And because Watchdog is part of our platform, it means it runs on the Blue Matador smart agent, a lightweight, auto-updating agent that installs in seconds on all your servers.
