Sites Monitor

Description

Monitor your WordPress websites from a single WordPress installation and keep track of plugin and WordPress version updates, storage, users, maintainers, clients, important notes and so on. You are completely in charge of your data.

How it works

Configure a WordPress website as the receiving party (the monitor) and have your public websites synchronize metrics towards it with an interval of your own choosing. Read our Getting Started guide for more information.

Is this plugin for me?

This plugin is for you if you prefer to update your WordPress installations directly and want to keep access to your sites restricted.
Sites Monitor helps you organize your websites, communicate with your clients, and track your sites visually, all without requiring access to any of your sites.

FAQ

Where can I find the documentation?

You can find the documentation at: verdant.studio/documentation/sites-monitor

Does this plugin affect performance?

Sites Monitor only uses a few API’s and sends a minimal amount of data to the site which acts as the monitor. The monitor site itself does not need to fetch or crawl data. You can also configure at what interval the data is synchronized.
