How to monitor a web page timestamp



I have a web page which contains a timestamp in it OR it contains an error that represents what failed while querying a database for the timestamp.

The errors have nothing in common so I would like to do a positive check for the presence of a valid UTC date/timestamp.

How do I do this with the Advaned HTTP Sensor?

Dear Chris,

I'm very sorry but this is not possible. The sensor will not be able to to interpret 'any values' as time nor then check against the current UTC. We would recommend to do this with a script sensor using wget or similar.

best regards.
