Organizations that must continuously oversee a large number of websites — even if they are owned by others, as in the case of web development shops that offer maintenance contracts — have a variety of solutions at hand to automate the process as much as possible, to reduce the time spent by staff members manually checking those sites, and to reduce the chances of a problem escaping notice, such as a malware infection not yet reported by site visitors. Some of the solutions are commercial services (e.g., Drupal Monitor and Lumturio), whereas others are contributed modules that would necessitate you or your staff implementing them on your own servers (e.g., the Monitoring module).
