Watchdog monitors vitals for your entire hardware stack

System admins know what they need to watch, but they don’t always have the time because they’re so busy.

Let Watchdog loose on your hardware by installing the Blue Matador smart agent and get proactive alerts on:


Swap space

VM steal time

System load

Hard disks




And more

Watchdog is free forever

Why is Watchdog free?

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 is Secure

What Data Watchdog Shares:

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.
