You can add any websites to Analytics that you want to monitor, for example, a company website or a website that hosts or publishes key information. You can also set alarms to trigger if the probe to the website fails or the response is too slow. In addition, you can add a content alarm that triggers if the response contains certain information, for example an error message, or does not contain the key information that you require.
Once you have added a website, you can also change settings for specific websites.
You can change the default Collection Interval for all websites.
Collection Interval: Change how often the websites are probed and alarms are triggered.
Alarms: You can also set default alarms to trigger when a website fails to respond or is slow to respond or if the request to the website returns with content that does not match criteria that you define.
You need to add websites as these are not added dynamically to Analytics. If the website requires authentication, you need to enter a username and password that grants access to the website. Only Windows Authentication is supported.
Once you have added websites, you can enable or disable a website , or remove it completely.
