Seems to me if you're already on the iSeries, you could just use WRKACTJOB
SBS(QHTTPSVR) to see if it's up or not.

Be a lot easier than downloading, installing and learning a new piece of
software.

I was gong to suggest the same thing. Scott's HTTP API or my GETURI
(www.bvstools.com/geturi.html) utility will easily do a check on a website.

Easiest way is to try to connect to the port (usually 80 for HTTP
traffic).

Our iSeries is hosting a website (apache).



I would like to know when the website is down.



What would be the best way to handle this?
