What http request would work to monitor uptime of a Openfire server? Currently I just use Perl to ping port 5222 to see if its alive. I am wondering what query I could send to Openfire (from an external Perl script) on port 5222 that would test to see if Openfire is functional, is not out of memory, and is responding to queries?
Check out java-monitor.com
Upload a .war and it takes care of the rest, with configurable SMS or email notification to boot.
That was an excellent answer. That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
