Frequently asked questions

What are the possible errors during the monitoring?

This page includes all the statuses used by internetVista. It concerns the statuses of verifications carried out by the monitoring centres. Each status is listed with its code and a brief description

The various protocols:

Common codes used for all protocols (Top)

OK (200)

This status indicates that the check is well done.

Matching sentence OK

The page returned by the server contains the keyword specified in the application.

Connection refused

The server refused to establish the connection.

Invalid variable

The variable is unknown, not defined or misused

Invalid function

The fonction call is not valid.

Response too slow

Server connection was successful but the server did not return a response within the time allowed. The time limit is 30 seconds.

No response

The server did not respond to the request. This could also be due to a firewall which is running and blocking certain ports, a server not powered up, an Internet connection problem, a called service which is unavailable, etc.

Invalid port

The port specified in the application to be verified is invalid or not responding.

Untrusted certificate

The certificate has not been signed by a trusted certificate authority or the certificate date is no longer valid.

Matching sentence error

The page returned by the server did not contain the keyword specified in the application. Remember that the "key phrase" field allows you to define a phrase which must be present in the content of your page. If your page does not contain the key phrase, an alarm is sent. The check is made by default on the first 16 kilobytes of the page.

Socket error

The server encountered a problem during the establishment of the connection.

Error

The monitoring service encounters an error which is not indexed in the specific errors of the protocol.

Malformed URL

The specified URL is invalid or wrongly constituted.

Unknown host

The DNS server used for the verification could not resolve the defined hostname.

No response

Generic status to indicate that the server did not respond to the request or that it is not accessible.


HTTP (Top)

Created (201)

The request has been fulfilled and resulted in a new resource being created. The newly created resource can be referenced by the URI(s) returned in the entity of the response, with the most specific URL for the resource given by a Location header field.

Accepted (202)

The request has been accepted for processing, but the processing has not been completed. This code is used instead of 201 when the processing of the request cannot be carried out immediately, leaving the result undetermined.

Non-Authoritative Information

Usually the preliminary information sent from a server to a browser comes directly from the server. If it does not, then this code might also be sent to indicate that information did not come from a known source.

No content (204)

The request was accepted and filled but no new information is being sent back. The browser receiving this response should not change its screen display (although new, and changed, private header information may be sent).

Moved permanently (301)

The URL is no longer accessible and has been definitively moved elsewhere (permanent redirection).

Moved temporarily (302)

The URL is no longer accessible and has been temporarily moved elsewhere (temporary redirection).

See other (303)

The requested URI can be found at a different URI (specified in the Location header) and should be retrieved by a GET on that resource.

Not Modified (304)

The web browser has performed a conditional GET request and access is allowed, but the document has not been modified. This classic response means you have configured your web browser to use an HTTP cache (proxy) in which a copy of the requested document is already stored. The cache proxy thus asked the server if the original document was modified, and received this response, so it will use the local copy instead of loading it from the server.

Use Proxy (305)

The requested URI must be accessed through the proxy in the Location header.

Content matching OK

The downloaded content matches the reference content of the monitored URL

Bad request (400)

The request was not understood by the server or the format of the request was incorrect.

Unauthorized (401)

Access to the URL requested was refused because it requires authentification of the user.

Payment Required (402)

A payment is required to access the requested URL.

Forbidden (403)

The server refused to process the request sent.

Not Found (404)

The document requested was not found at the specified URL.

Method Not Allowed (405)

Request method not permitted.

Not Acceptable (406)

The resource identified by the request is only capable of generating response entities which have content characteristics not acceptable according to the accept headers sent in the request.

Request Timeout (408)

This response code means the client did not produce a full request within some predetermined time (usually specified in the server's configuration), and the server is disconnecting the network connection.

Gone (410)

This code indicates that the requested URI no longer exists and has been permanently removed from the server.

Request Entity Too Large (413)

The server is refusing to process a request because the request entity is larger than the server is willing or able to process.

Method Not Allowed (405)

The expectation given in an Expect request-header field could not be met by this server, or, if the server is a proxy, the server has unambiguous evidence that the request could not be met by the next-hop server.

Internal error (500)

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

Not Implemented (501)

The HTTP server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource (either the web browser is too recent, or the HTTP server is too old).

Bad gateway (502)

The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, received an invalid response from a resource responding to the request.

Service unavailable (503)

The server is currently unable to handle the request due to temporary overload or maintenance of the server.

Gateway timeout (504)

The server did not receive a timely response from another server that it was accessing while attempting to load the web page or fill another request by the browser. This usually means that the other server is down or not working properly.

HTTP Version not supported (505)

The server will not support the HTTP protocol version used in the request.

Javascript error
