Flexible server monitoring

Browser Type

Is it possible to allow us to change the "Browser Type" that Simon sends to servers? I assume right now it's something about Simon, but I've come across a site that tosses up an error message saying the browser is incompatible with the server. If I were able to change the Browser String then I think it would work, and I could use Simon to monitor it.

Re: Browser Type

Hi Gord.

That isn't possible in the Basic service yet, though could be added. I've made a note of the suggestion.

In the meantime, if you were adventurous you could add a Script service to fetch the page via the curl command, like:

curl -A "{UserAgent}" {TestURL}

With {UserAgent} being a custom variable.
