When adding a website or server to be monitored, what monitoring interval will you use?
We were recently asked by a client:
Which monitoring interval should I use? 5-min or 1-min?
Some users tell us that their websites require special HTTP headers. For example, they need us to send custom User-Agent or Cookie value so that their websites return the correct response (for keyword matching to work properly).
While most users do not need these custom settings, we decided to offer these advanced HTTP options so that you can use our monitoring system to monitor any website. This post explains how you can customize the HTTP headers and other HTTP parameters.
