HTTP test anomoly - aka I don't understand this

I have a server which is down - won't ping at the moment, and won't load the index page in a browser - yet the Simon test shows good. Seems like I'm overlooking something here - but don't know what. Get and post both show good. Suggestions for a more comprehensive test appreciated.

Re-checking the test doesn't show it as a failure? What happens if you preview it?

You don't have any special filters on the test by any chance? It's possible to filter a failure into a success.

Sounds weird... might be worthwhile confirming that the test is actually checking the affected server, and isn't mislabeled or something.

no filters - they restarted the box, so it's good now - v strange. I'm going back to running Wireshark on my Simon box for a week because of some other transient failures in the infrastructure, so I'll let you know if I see anything useful. tx
