RE: how to tell if website hosted on iseries is down



fixed

He does?

I was just going by what he posted in his original message which was how to
tell if his website is up or not on his iSeries.

You got more out of that question than I did I guess.



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?

You're missing his point, Shannon.

He wants something (an application) to monitor it, and alert him (via phone,
email, etc) if it's down. Not someone just looking at WRKACTJOB.

As far as learning, both tools mentioned would take minutes to set up if
that. GETURI is as easy as saying:

GETURI URI(www.bvstools.com) OUTOUT(*FILE) FILE(TEST)

MONMSG after the command for no reponse, and if there is, simply check the
data in file TEST for an HTTP repsonse.

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).
