Try this link: http://bfy.tw/7luK

You've been here NINE YEARS now; you should know that you need to show some actual effort of your own, and at least TRY to do basic research for yourself, and provide details. You tell us NOTHING about version/distro of Linux, what web engine you're using, or even what you mean by "manage maintenance windows". These are all things that can be easily scripted....have you done/tried ANYTHING?

Ok, havent been active for a while now, so feeling a little rusty. Sorry about that. :-(
I am trying to monitor application uptime - application built on java.
Basically I would like the tool to access the page , login with pre entered credentials and report if there is an error.
I should also be able to schedule maintenance activities for this application which stops the monitoring and does not impact the availability report negatively.
And of course as you could have guessed I would like to pull out a report at the end of the month which will show me the uptime which excludes scheduled maintenance and only gets impacted if the application went down without a planned maintenance.
I am using CentOs and would like something that I can install on this system to be able to monitor my application publicly available on the web.

Of course I have been researching , and have a handful of them , but could do with a little help from any user who has had a similar requirement and has tried something that makes my job easier.
I have used ZenOss earlier but I don't want to use it for such a simple requirement in another env.

Is this an application you've written? If so, it should be trivial for you to simply write another java program to check this, and schedule it to run the check regularly. Couple that with any of the MANY pre-written website up/down utilities, and you've got your solution.

Now you get to 'reporting'...for which you need something to keep track of things. Now your stuff needs to have a database or some way to trigger/exclude events.

Great...so again, there are MANY web-monitoring tools already available. You mention Zenoss, and there is also Nagios, Zabbix, and lots of other tools. If you want tracking, reporting, etc., there you go. Otherwise, you can write your own set of scripts to do whatever you wish...that's up to you.

We don't know what you've done, unless you tell us. You say you've researched a handful of them...which ones??? We can't guess as to what you've looked at.

Web pages don't have "uptimes".

A whole package (Monitoring) for one web page is overkill.

Please let us know.
