Read Text from http Status Report Websites




I am looking for how to read a text (running, error) from a website in PRTG. This is a status report page of a web service. Is there a sensor that can do that?

The HTTP Advanced Sensor has content checks (string or regex based) that you can use to ensure the website contains a certain string.
