There are cases when users need to monitor not just one page, but a sequence of actions to make sure the whole application is working. For example do a login and then check the page after login, or add product to the shopping card and check shopping card etc. monitor.us doesn’t do such transactional testing yet (although this feature is planned Q4/2006).
There is, however, a solution, which requires a little programming to be done. You can develop a new page which does such checks on the backend and then return OK or error. For example you can use http/html unit testing packages https://httpunit.sourceforge.net or https://htmlunit.sourceforge.net. Using these packages you can develop code which will send http requests to your page and check the response. Put this page under a new URL and then add monitoring for this page. So every time monitor.us checks this URL it ultimately checks the whole transaction sequence.
The main advantage of this method is that you get full control and you can make very sophisticated checks. Also when you change something in your site you know how it affects your controlling page and you can make appropriate changes. Of course this method works if you have such skills, but if you don’t, you may contact us or post a request on https://www.elance.com/ or https://rentacoder.com and get it done fast and at good price. Having such kind of control page is a good idea anyway regardless of monitoring.
