Describes how url status alert works

Url alert configuration screen

'Url' alarm is raised, when one of the monitored urls response does not match specified criteria.

You can specify expected HTTP code, expected response and if SSL/TLS errors should be ignored.

As checks are always run on particular machine (Arm) it is easy to monitor all nodes in loadbalancing scenario.

This alert is particularly useful for monitoring web applications and web APIs. As your application is beeing accessed at specified interval, your users won't be affected by cold start. (Cold startup occurs when your application starts for the first time after a system reboot or application pool beeing recycled)
