Hello all, I am running a CSM version 3.1(6).
I was asked to create custom probe that can use a set of credentials to log in to a web service and measure the time it takes for a response.
Please let me know if it is even possible with the TCL scripts, I suspect not, but wanted to hear from someone that has more knowledge of the custom scripting on the CSM.
This should be possible.
I see at least 2 different ways of doing it.
One is to sniff a connection where you do what you expect the script to do.
Then extract from the sniffer trace the hexadecimal data representing the HTTP Request.
Create a script to send that hexadecimal data.
You could also create the same data in cleartext manually in a variable and ask the script to simply send it.
Then you have to analyze the response.
You can't really measure the time, but I believe you can set the max amount of time to wait for the response.
