transaction monitoring issue



We have a transaction monitoring setup with 4 steps where first go to site.com - GET site.com/login - POST with some data then logout etc. When the site goes down our load balancer redirects visitors to an unavailable page. So site.com goes to sitedown.com and any sub folders also gets redirected. So site.com/login will also go to sitedown.com. This happened yesterday and the transaction monitor indicated that the site is up and never showed it as down. Am I missing something in how this is supposed to work?

presuming this is a HTTP Transaction Sensor, can you forward us a screenshot of it's settings to [email protected] ?
