The Web Page Monitor lets you define one or more web pages and content on those pages that should be checked.
When you specify a web page to be watched, you give the URL to the page, a specific piece of text that must exist on the page to indicate success, and an optional piece of text on the page that would indicate an error. You can specify whether cookies are passed and whether a proxy-server needs to be used to get to the page. Finally, you can also specify the maximum amount of time that a page can take to respond--if it takes longer the configured actions are fired (just like the other failure cases of not finding the success text on the page or finding the optional error text on the page).
Web page response times are recorded so you can create tabular or graphical reports to show response history.
The Web Page monitor can create reports based on the page response time for the target URL. This data can be charted as well as output in .CSV or HTML tabular form. In addition, you can define what 'up' means and create an uptime report showing a percentage of uptime over a given time period.
