    So for monitoring a web url, how do you validate the website is actually up? For instance. My vB forum went down last week and the page was displaying, however, the database had crashed and key information was missing from the thread so technically the URL was available, but not all the information.

    We have that at work, extremely inconsistent with false outages.

    most paid monitoring services like pingdom and nodeping which i use at Uptime | Centmin Mod Community also have advanced checks which you can set to look for specific code, text or key phrases in your targeted web url. So if that text etc isn't found it can consider it down and alert you.

    nodeping's advanced http check by headers or specific string content in url

    For server is up/down check I personally use the https://www.alertra.com/ service for about 8 month. Previously I was using the pingdom for about 3-4 years on my 4 website so i'm happy for now with alertra because it supports the mobile phone calling when website down :)

    P.S: Of course it is paid version and i pay about 10$ monthly for 4 website. Check interval 1 min, and string check on my some pages. Not ping.

    I ended up settling with StatusCake and couldn't be happier than a fat kid in a candy shop!
