We have added three new monitoring agents to our AppBeat collection:
- HTTP header agent: if you want to monitor just HTTP header values from web server, without downloading content, then you should use this agent. This is fastest and most optimal way, to check if your web server is alive.
Note: your web server must support HTTP HEAD request as described in RFC 2616 protocol, section 9.4.
- TCP connectivity agent: this is simple agent which checks if TCP port is open or not. For example, you could use this agent to check if RDP port 3389 is waiting for connections. Of course, you can use any port you want. For list of common ports you can check this Wikipedia article: List of TCP and UDP port numbers
- UDP connectivity agent: similar to TCP connectivity agent, only that it checks UDP ports.
In addition to that, we can also implement private agents, which can monitor your custom solution and are available only to you. If you are interested, please contact us.
