Url Monitoring Service

Over the weekend I wanted to see if I could create a useful software product. I decided on a url monitoring application that was highly configurable. After abour four hours of work I came up with version one of a url monitoring service. It is very configurable and includes the following:

– Unlimited urls
– GET, POST and PUT with uploading strings or text
– Email if something is unexpected or the response on the url changes
– Frequency at which to check a url
– Customize the http headers sent with the url check

The tool should work great on a dedicated Windows server, although a Linux server should work as well under Mono.

Good luck and we hope you enjoy the tool.

Find the project on github and download now!

If you liked this tool and feel so inclined, please feel free to donate so we can make more cool software.

I think i created something that works quite nice using the HtmlAgilityPack, check it out in my fork: https://github.com/RvdHout/UrlMonitor

Hi Jeffrey!

The UrlMonitor.csproj is missing from the git repository.
