Checking for text on a website



Hi, I'd like not only to check if a website is accessible via HTTP/HTTPS but to check for text on that website. I'm currently using ActiveXperts for this but want to migrate all our clients over to PRTG and I cant find a good way of doing it. Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot Mark

http text website

Hey Mark,

for content checks, you can either use the HTTP Advanced Sensor or the HTTP Content Sensor.

A list of all available HTTP sensors, can be found here

Best regards,
