I have been using Nagios for years. Open Source, very flexible, plenty
of plugins. I monitor my IBM i as well as our remote websites hosted by
Rackspace in Chicago. A little dicey to set up but pretty rock solid
once you are up and running. Linux based.

Is there an easy way to monitor for Internet failures?
On Friday morning, Level3 had a major outage, which in turn was causing intermittent failures for our Curbstone credit card system which runs on our i5.
It was 4 hours before we were notified that Level3 was the source of the issue and no problem of ours.


Curbstone uses a URL, which rotates to any one of 6 ips, spread across the US.
When the IP was used that was in the Level3 outage area is when we noticed intermittent failures.

Thank You
