Preventing False Alarms
I'm evaluating ServersCheck to replace a competing product and I'm having a problem with getting multiple false alarms when doing a URL check. Using the competing product I am able to set up checks every two minutes and if four of these checks fail in a row (for a total of 6 minutes of overall 'down time') an alert is sent. With ServersCheck, it appears that after a single failure, the 'retries' are done immediately (so the total server 'down time' is actually only the few seconds it took ServersCheck to immediately retest the URL four times). Because of this, even a minor network glitch of a few seconds has the potential for sending an alert.
Personally, I would the like web server to be _repeatedly_ detected as 'down' over a span of at least 6 minutes before getting a 4am wakeup call. Is there some way to do this with ServersCheck? If not, is there some way to set up the ServersCheck software to check a URL without getting a bunch of false alarms?
