check and alert on HTTP and Ping response

Communicator

Hello,

I need something that can check every 20mins or so that it can ping the sever and then also an http 200 resposen, the if there is no response or not 200 then Splunk alerts.

Has anybody already got a script to do this?

Thanks

Have you tried the Website Monitoring app ?

It doesn't come with alerts setup , but it will certainly index all the information you require so that you can write your own scheduled searches and wire up alerts.

Damien, I wasn't aware of this app thanks very much.

I am trying to install the app, but keep getting the same error when trying to configure. I have cleared caches and tried different browsers, checked CPU and RAM usage also all other Splunk apps work fine.

Encountered the following error while trying to update: Splunkd daemon is not responding: (u'Error connecting to /servicesNS/nobody/websitemonitoring/apps/local/websitemonitoring/setup: The read operation timed out',)

Let me know how you fixed that issue. I would like to fix this in the app itself. This is the first I have heard of this problem. I tried to reproduce on several combinations of platforms and Splnk versions but I haven't been able to reproduce it yet.

The app ships with a saved search called "websiteperformanceproblems". You can open that search in Splunk's search editor and enable actions in order to get alerted to failures.
