I am new to Hyperic. I was wondering is there any way we can monitor URLS through hyperic? All I need is to monitor a particular url ex;www.google.com.If we can, do we need to get an agent? I have installed the master. Can anyone tell me if this is possible and how can I do it? thanks
With HQ, you must have at least one agent running to perform remote checks. This can be done with an agent running on the HQ Server itself, although, it is encouraged that you use one or more agents running on other boxes for larger scale environments.
The HTTP check is part of the network services available for manual definition on a platform (host running an agent). The platform where the HTTP service is defined will be used to perform the check, and the results will be sent from this platform back up to the HQ Server. Any platform existing in inventory can perform this check, including the HQ Server itself if you have installed an HQ Agent on it.
