- Common monitoring item properties
- Type-specific Monitoring Item Properties
This section briefly describes various methods used to determine whether the
monitored resource was changed.
- "Resource Size/Date/Time comparing"
- this check method consists in checking the resource headers/listing information.
When checking the link the program compares the current and the previously
saved values. This is the fastest and the least bandwidth consuming method,
but it isn't effective with dynamically generated HTML documents. This
method is recommended for checking binary files and static documents.
- "Exact content analysis" - this check method
consists in comparing the resource content with its previously saved copy. This is the slowest
and the most bandwidth consuming method, but the most precise one. This method is recommended
for monitoring dynamically generated documents. Warning
: do not use this method for checking large binary files (executable
files, archives and so on), because the program may take all yours PC
- "RSS feed processing" - this check method points to the program to
process the document as RSS feed. Using this method enables internal RSS
reader for the given resource and lets the program notify you when any new
feeds are posted. This method makes sense only for XML document checking.
- "Smart content analysis" - this check method
consists in monitoring a specific part(s) of the resource or/and keyword
presense/ansense. This method is recommended for tracking news, stock data,
exchange rates, weather etc. The method is rather slow and bandwidth
consuming, but it lets you track only part(s) of the resource you're are
interested in. See Smart
content analysis for details.
