    How do you monitor your cloud instance and trading bot so that you're always up-to-date with what is going on? I would like to be notified in case trading bot crashes/hangs, or if Windows instance doesn't respond.

    One idea is to write a file by trading bot every X minutes, if this file is NOT updated -> something is wrong with trading bot. If Windows doesn't respond -> something is wrong with cloud instance.

    Is there a way to be automatically notified on my smartphone/email when any of these two scenarios happen? How and which software/apps should i look for?

    It depends on your cloud provider. The Google cloud offers a "Monitoring" section in their cloud dashboard that allows you set up all kinds of alerts that you can be notified by via email, SMS, etc.

    I have Pingdom checking my bot's health API every minute and SMS/email if returns wrong code or can't reach.

    There are many services like that. Some for free.

    1.For net. you can track your network card to monitor for stream availability.
    2.For deadlock. you can monitor the presence of a data stream.
    3. For a signal of error, you can use a telegram bot.
