We are currently monitoring URL-Response using the probe url_response probe.
How can we generate an Availability Report using UIM, Cabi, or the Operator console?
Release : UIM 20.4
There is no out-of-the-box URL_RESPONSE Availability Report.
So, to build an effective URL Availability report you will have to use one of the following custom options.
First of all, with URL_RESPONSE you can monitor response time and other QOS measures available.
To have an availability report the metric that can be used is "Sub-String Found"
The example below shows the different options:
Below we are m monitoring the URL www.tmb.cat
To know if the URL is actually available we can search for a substring of our choice from the returned content. And look for the substring:
and enable sub-string found metric:
The metric (QOS_URL_SUBSTRING_FOUND) will be 1 when it's found and NULL when it's not found
Once you have collected this metric you have different options for creating graphs:
You can use the metric viewer:
You can create a custom CABI Report as the below:
(To build such CABI Report follow the instructions --> How to create customized reports using UIM CABI )
In the report below it is showing the state is up all the time:
Alternatively, you can use the SLM application and create SLA Reports (broadcom.com)

The above are the options available with UIM for building a URL Availability Report.
