Is there a simple app for pinging a list of websites?
Basically, I just need a simple app that frequently pings external IP Addresses and web addresses to make sure the sites are up. Does anyone know of a good one of these? I started to make one myself, but wanted to know if someone else has already done the work. It just needs to track multiple external addresses with the status codes returned, at potentially different intervals. I did see this post on "How do you monitor the availability of multiple websites", but it seems a little bit like overkill for what I need. I need a KISS app! Thanks!
Ok, second attempt. What about Website Monitor (seen in this list: Monitor and Check Web Site or Server Uptime and Availability for Free)? Your dog should be able to use it.
I'm not sure if this fits your needs but http://aremysitesup.com/ May be a simple way to go. The free version supports up to five sites.
This can be done with Cacti which is a great app. See: Http Response Time monitoring and Alerting on the Cacti forums How do you Monitor a https website and graph uptime/latency? on the Cacti forums Cacti: Using Cacti to monitor web page loading blog posts serie Use Cacti to Monitor HTTP Status Codes of Request Responses?) here on SO
Unless you are the network admin of those sites it is a colossal waste of resources, what I call ping-then-do. Ping-then-do
