How to monitor http web pages and splunk the results?

Communicator

Hello

I'm looking to set something up that calls a bunch of http webpages that run on some of our boxes that need a username & password and logs a couple of things

  • Whether the page is pingable
  • Grabs the page content and then i can parse it into Splunk

I'm not really sure where to start with this, I guess it needs some kind of script. I was just wondering if anyone had written anything similar that could help me or has any ideas that could just guide me into where to start with this?

I don't really know much perl or python but I'm getting I'll need something like this to do this?

Thanks
Hazel

Hi Hazel

I would do this with a script which calls 'wget' or 'lynx -d'
then you get a dump of the webpage, which could be read by splunk or if the page is down (not pingable) your script can error out something which is also read by splunk.
