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.
Input the following information:
- Destination (required for version 0.11.1 or and earlier, determined via Resource in version 0.11.2): The URL of the webpage to be tested.
- Count (required): How many HTTP requests the agent should run before exiting. The default value is 0.
- Leave it at 0 if it's a permanent/ongoing test.
- Specify the number of packets to send before exiting.
- Interval (required): The number of seconds between two consecutive HTTP queries. By default the interval is set to 30 seconds.
- Timeouts per datapoint (required): The number of seconds that the agent will wait for a response by the HTTP server before declaring that datapoint failed. The default value is 5 seconds.
