Protect Your Stack From Basic System Vitals Problems That Lead to 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.


Comprehensive Hardware Notifications

Watchdog monitors ulimit, filesystems, CPU usage, memory usage, disk I/O, disk space, and long-running processes.


Configured with alerts out of the box

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.


No Need for Multiple Installs or Programs

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.

System-level monitor

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.

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.

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.
