C.8.9. Network Services::Secure Web Server (HTTPS)

The Network Services::Secure Web Server (HTTPS) probe determines the availability of the secure Web server and collects the following metric:
  • Remote Service Latency — The time it takes in seconds for the HTTPS server to answer a connection request.
This probe confirms that it can connect to the HTTPS port on the specified host and retrieve the specified URL. If no URL is specified, the probe fetches the root document. The probe looks for a HTTP/1. message from the system unless you alter that value. Specifying another port number overrides the default port of 443.
This probe supports authentication. Provide a username and password in the appropriate fields to use this feature. Unlike most other probes, this probe returns a CRITICAL status if it cannot contact the system within the timeout period.
