About Us

We are a Christian married couple in our twenties, living and working in Harare, Zimbabwe (along with sleeping, eating, breathing and loving Jesus!)

Anthony runs his own IT business, Somerset Technical Solutions

Anthony enjoys playing racing (the car variety) games, watching motorsport, playing badminton, swimming and best of all, hanging out with his wife!

Marie works for herself from home in the position of Full Time Mom & Wife.

In her spare time she likes to play tennis and squash, cook, hang out with her husband and watch the Friends!

We recently made the move from London, UK to Harare, Zimbabwe and enjoying the warmer climates and parenthood and we are now very much stuck into a local church called ONE Church.

Ronnie was added to the Somerset clan on 22nd January 2013 and currently prefers to sleep, eat, poo and smile.

    Congratualtions on the VPS.net launch-ness.

    Are you using Aegir to manage multiple sites? Or is just making your life easier on this one site?

    Hi Anthony, we briefly chatted on Twitter the other day regarding setting up a VPS.net server. I have a question and wondered if you would be able to help ?

    What monitoring tools do you use to evaluate your website in terms of speeds and performance ? also how do you know when your site is under heavy load so you can respond with more nodes ?

    I use to work for Gomez (gomez.com) who specialised in proactive monitoring tools but these are not cheap.

    Any help would be awesome, thanks

    HI shane

    i use site-perf.com and tools.pingdom.com to monitor site speeds. in terms of adapting node count on load you can use server density, i dont use this at the moment as most sites are on servers that have lots of spare resources or optimised so that increase traffic would only have a minimal impact.

    for monitoring i use pingdom and make use of there advanced HTTP calls to detect when either mysql is down or load is high etc as well as apache

    feel free to send me an email: anthony@somersettechsolutions.co.uk
