HTTP task

An HTTP Task checks a single URL for availability, performance, proper content, errors, and broken links. It supports POST and GET requests, cookies, form submissions, custom headers, password secured sites (basic HTTP authorization as well as cookie/script authorization mechanisms), and timeout thresholds. The HTTP task supports monitoring of both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.

For websites with significant JavaScript or Ajax, or for “user experience” transaction monitoring, the browser-based UserView Monitoring Web Application Monitoring service is recommended.
