URL checks

URL Check

URL check is used to monitor URL's on the local machine where a server monitor is installed. The check fails when the configured URL is not available.

Only local URLs can be monitored. The local URLs can be configured in the following ways.
  • http://localhost
  • http://$$HOSTNAME$$
  • http://$$IP$$   
NOTE: The port number can also be given in the URL if needed. $$HOSTNAME$$ and $$IP$ are useful while associating the resource check profile with several server monitors and when the host name or IP of the machine is not known. These will be replaced with the appropriate host name or IP.
