I need to use check_http on a path that is http://servername/ping.asp. I do not know how to use check_http to look at a path other than the / (root). I see the -u but it does not work and gives me an error.

nssmonitor plugins # ./check_http -H 198.181.235.123
HTTP OK HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 346 bytes in 0.003 seconds |time=0.002832s;;;0.000000 size=346B;;;0
nssmonitor plugins # ./check_http -H 198.181.235.123 -u idxwfping.asp
HTTP WARNING: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

How do I get this plugin to check http://198.181.235.123/idxwfping.asp ? Thanks!

Hi,

Did you try to run it with "-I" option instead of "-H"?

Code:
I, --IP-address=ADDRESS
    IP address or name (use numeric address if possible to bypass DNS lookup).

Above should work. In your first example you forgot the leading /. Try specifying the full url, like

./check_http -H servername -u "http://198.181.235.123/idxwfping.asp"

If that works you could set something like -u "http://$HOSTADDRESS$/$ARG1$" and use !idxwfping.asp

Thanks for the response. No soup!

Code:

nssmonitor plugins # ./check_http -H 198.181.235.123 -u "http://198.181.235.123/idxwfping.asp"
CRITICAL - Socket timeout after 10 seconds
