Trouble with HTTP 200 OK monitor

Hi guys, I have one trouble when I'm trying to monitor the 200 OK status code of one HTTP service.

Here is the Send string of the HTTP monitor: HEAD HTTP/1.[01]\r\nHost:domain.com\r\n\r\n

Receive string: HTTP/1.[01] 200

Could someone tell me if the monitor is written like it shoud be?

Thanks !

Hello, I think the resource (/status for example) is missing. Example of HEAD monitor (send string):

HEAD /infor HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: \r\nConnection: Close\r\n

Receive string

200 OK

We implemented it like this.

send string: GET /exampleURL HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n

receive string: HTTP/1\.(0|1) (200)

However I try to force our devolopers to create intelligent healthcheck websites with proper response strings. Much easier and quicker for everyone.
