Does HTTP Full Web Page download 3rd party URLs (css, js, etc)?



Does the HTTP Full Web Page sensor also download images and other objects (css, js etc) from 3rd part URLs? If so it would be extremely helpful if we could have an option to disable this. The reason being is that we don't want to be notified if a 3rd party is down. We only want to be notified when it something that we have control over.

No, you have not control over what actually is downloaded. See What is the difference between "HTTP" and "HTTP Full Web Page" Web Server sensors? for details.

It would be great if you could add this functionality. It would be very helpful. It's the only significant feature that we're missing after switching to PRTG:)

Please consider setting up HTTP sensors for your most important web page elements.

Did you know? In the URL field, you can not only link to a web page, but also directly to an image, a flash file etc., in order to monitor this file's availability. This way, you can keep an eye on important parts of your website and can configure PRTG to notify you if, for example, a certain image is currently not available.
