HTTP is an application-based test that enables an agent to verify the availability and response time of a web server, expressed in seconds. The test can also execute an HTTP query with GET parameters included in the URL.
HTTP tests can be configured on the Target Setup form.
You can also run an ad-hoc HTTP test with Ad-Hoc Testing.
