Sometimes a simple ping is insufficient

[OBJECT]
Active=true
Status=true
Name=ping lima-city
Command=ping -c 1 -W 2 smolka.lima-city.de
Notifier=konsole --nofork --noclose -e ping -c 4 smolka.lima-city.de

because ‘ping’ is blocked, you want to know if the web server is responding, and to check if a specific file exists respectively. There are some alternatives like ‘curl’, ‘httping’ or ‘wget’. While the other ones often deliver an ‘OK’ (0) when expecting an error code, I experienced that wget in spider mode works best for me.

Example 1: Checking if a web server is responding with wget --spider

[OBJECT]
Active=true
Status=true
Name=abap developer
Command=wget --spider --force-html -i https://smolka.lima-city.de/index.php
Notifier=konsole --nofork --noclose -e wget --spider --force-html -i https://smolka.lima-city.de/index.php

.

Will be continued…
So long,

Remember:
There are some options like ‘curl’, ‘httping’ or ‘wget’. While the former ones often deliver an okay code (0) when expecting an error code (1+); wget [–spider] works best for me.

Example 2: Monitor, view, and activate a log file with wget

[OBJECT]
Active=true
Status=true
Name=abap developer log
Command=wget --spider --force-html -i https://smolka.lima-city.de/mylog.flg
Notifier=konsole --nofork --noclose -e wget -O - https://smolka.lima-city.de/mylog.html

[OBJECT]
Active=true
Status=false
Name=read abap dev log
Command=xdg-open https://smolka.lima-city.de/mylog.html
Notifier=

[OBJECT]
Active=true
Status=false
Name=reset abap dev log
Command=xdg-open https://smolka.lima-city.de/mylog-reset.php
Notifier=

I am still hoping to get some interesting use cases from you …

Cheers!

First of all:
The above mentioned test phase is over.
The download is now open to all users who already want to use the advanced features.

Before you use two or more SMonitors, you might want to think about a main SMonitor as a control center. From this central app the different SMonitors for a wide range of applications could then be started at the touch of a button, as indicated in the following image.

SMonitor-L

So much for getting started with the parallel use of multiple SMonitor applications.
In the next post I will present the use of CSS at the SMonitor.
