How to Сreate Devices and Targets

Configuring a Target

Time Validation Threshold (in seconds)

Enter the number of seconds the task should wait for a response from the web page before ending the task and returning an error. If this is left blank the default timeout for a task is 120 seconds.

Custom Script

In this section, you can specify the script details.

Name: Specify the file to run the custom script.

Arguments: Specify any arguments to be passed into the custom script at task runtime.

All string arguments must be quoted.

For URL-type arguments, an URL scheme must be provided (i.e. http:// or https://).

Numeric arguments don’t need to be quoted.

Check the available custom scripts below:

Error Filter

You can set a filter to ignore specific error types and codes. In the Error Filter section, you can filter out certain user-configurable errors. For example, DNS errors could be filtered out based on who is responsible for DNS server operations. You can create filters that will ignore specific errors that you know may occur and are not relevant to the goal of a specific device.

In addition, you can set up the system to ignore a range of error codes using a dash, or multiple error codes using semicolons as a separator.

For example, if on one particular device, you do not care about 404 errors, you can filter them out so that you do not receive alerts when they are detected.

Note that if an error matches the filter conditions, the error will not be reflected on the reports and can’t be tracked down.
