IPM and IP SLA and https url

Unanswered Question
Dec 14th, 2007

Hi all,

I wish to monitor an https url on port 8080 with IP SLA with IPM on LMS 2.6. When i say monitor i think about checking availability of a particular url https://url:8080 and have an alert action if the url don't respond.

Is it possible to do a such thing with IPM and IPM ?


I have this problem too.

While IPM 2.6 doesn't have a specific HTTPS operation defined, since you only want to check availability, you can simply define a TCP Connect operation testing port 8080.

Thank you for your answer.

So in definitive i can only test the port on the IP address and not the url with my configuration.

You specify that "LMS2.6 doesn't have a specific HTTPS operation" did you mean that LMS 3.0 can monitor an HTTPS url ?

I haven't used LMS 3.x/IPM 4.x, but it hasn't seemed to change signficantly when it comes to HTTPS monitoring. If you're concerned about the availability of a specific HTTPS URL while the main HTTPS site is up, I think tools such as HP SiteScope would fulfill your requirement better.
