Any HTTP endpoints monitoring with Netdata

This module monitors one or more http servers availability and response time.

Charts

It produces the following charts:

  • HTTP Response Time in ms
  • HTTP Check Status in boolean
  • HTTP Current State Duration in seconds
  • HTTP Response Body Length in characters

Check statuses

Status Description
success No error on HTTP request, body reading and body content checking
timeout Timeout error on HTTP request
bad content The body of the response didn’t match the regex (only if response_match option is set)
bad status Response status code not in status_accepted
no connection Any other network error not specifically handled by the module

Configuration

Edit the go.d/httpcheck.conf configuration file using edit-config from the your agent’s config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/httpcheck.conf

Here is an example for 2 servers:

jobs:
  - name: cool_website1
    url: http://cool.website1:8080/home

  - name: cool_website2
    url: http://cool.website2:8080/home
    status_accepted:
      - 200
      - 201
      - 202
    response_match: <title>My cool website!<\/title>

For all available options please see module configuration file.
