I am using Watchdog to monitor, among other things, our web server. I =
do not receive the 404 error (File not Found), and I run IIS4.0. =
Right now the HTTP Page test is configured in this way:
Via Web Proxy Server (host:port): (blank)

Perhaps if you are receiving a 404 error, the Watchdog is sending a =
query for a page which doesn't exist on the server. The default page =
for the page above is "default.htm" I'm not =
sure if that's significant.

Good luck!

Subject: [NTISP] HTTP Monitoring Tool

I am looking for a tool which runs under NT that I can schedule to
periodically check to see if a web server is up. I'd like to be
able to schedule which HTML page or ASP page is hit. I looked
at the Watchdog product, which seems to fit the bill but I can't
get it to work with IIS. It gets a 404 error, object not found,
yet it works fine against a Unix Apache system. If it had features
like meaasuring the time it took to load the page and log it, that
would be even better.

Thanks in advance,
