Issue/Introduction

Is there any other way monitoring url's other than using url_response probe ?

Environment

Release : 8.51

Component : UIM - URL_RESPONSE

Resolution

There is the e2e_appmon probe which can look for text on a page, click buttons, etc... and report response time, failures, qos, etc...

There is also the net_connect probe which can test whether a service is listening on port 80/443:

Another option is the logmon probe in combination with a shell script or batch file.

That script/batch file could call the OS curl command to fetch a URL and reports on the response or HTTP status, etc...
