How to Monitor Individual Ports on Servers and Websites

Want to monitor specific ports on your servers and websites?

If you have placed a website on a non-specific port to make it trickier to find on the web or to be able to authenticate it separately from the rest of the website, use RapidSpike’s port monitors to check if your selected ports are open or closed.

Servers

Go to the Server you would like to add the port monitor to by selecting “Servers” in the left blue menu and clicking on your chosen one.

Navigate to Server Uptime in the left blue menu.


Click the green “Add Monitor” button in the top right of the page.


From the form that appears, select TCP (Port) Monitor as the type, and then fill in the monitor label, choose the port you would like to monitor and the expected response.

You can review the data from this monitor by going to the “Port Scan” tab in the left blue menu.

Websites

Navigate to the website you’d like to add the port monitor to by going to “Websites” in the left blue menu and selecting your chosen site.

Then go to the page you would like to monitor the ports for, by clicking on the “Pages” tab in the left blue menu, and selecting your chosen page.

Go to the settings for this page by clicking the cog icon in the upper right corner.

Here you can edit the Path for the page, and in this box you can input the port you would like to monitor. 

Note: The format to input this information should be :port, then if you want to add a path put / then the path
For example, :8080/an/example/path
