Web Server | HTTP endpoint

The Netdata Agent monitors your HTTP endpoints. You can specify endpoints that the agent will monitor in
Agent’s Go module under go.d/httpcheck.conf. You can also specify the expected response pattern.
This HTTP endpoint will send in the response_match option. 1 If the endpoint’s response does not match the response_match pattern, then the Agent marks the response
as unexpected.

The Netdata Agent calculates the average ratio of HTTP responses with unexpected content over the
last 5 minutes.

This alert is escalated to warning if the percentage of unexpected content is greater than 10%
and then raised to critical if it is greater than 40%.

Check the actual response and the expected response.
  1. Try to implement a request with a verbose result:
root@netdata # curl -v <your_http_endpoint>:<port>/<path>
  1. Compare it with the expected response.

Check your configuration under go.d/httpcheck.conf:

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/httpcheck.conf
