How to add localhost URL check that is NOT a root URL ?

We want to add a URL check on ie. http://localhost/healthcheck in the Server Monitor, but it won't let you do this.  (It will throw error "Please enter the URL in a valid format. Accepted formats are given below.")

How can we monitor a local URL like this, without having to revert to writing a custom plugin ? I'd really like to have the administration centrally witinin Site24x7 console for this

Hi Simon,

 

We are working on removing this restriction now. We will enable adding non-root localhost URLs in URL check monitoring soon. Once the changes for this are live, we'll reply on this forum post thread. Thank you for raising this feedback.

I too could really use this feature, but I am hopeful when it is implemented it is not simply a check that the site exists and returns a any content, like a 200.  Rather rather that there is a string or regex content check on the return.  We need to be able to determine the health of a local web site by validating the return page has a certain string in it, like "good".  Currently returning a sting of "error" would also be considered fine since the page responds.

Hi, 

 

We have removed the restriction for the URL checks in Resource Check Profile. It is now possible to add non-root URLs for monitoring in resource checks. 

For more detailed monitoring of local URLs, our website monitor can be used with the On-Premise Poller configured to monitor behind the firewall. For more details refer our URL/Website Monitoring Help.
