Possible negative status codes in SiteScope

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

Many time SiteScope set status as some negative code (such as -996) to represent status, Is there any documentation listing all negative status codes and there descriptions or can someone share additional known codes and there meaning?

 

So far i have collected following information regarding negative codes for URL/FTP monitors:

unknown host name ------> -997
unable to reach server ???
unable to connect to server ------> -998
timed out reading ----> -996
content match error -----> -999

content changed --------> -995

 

We need this information to define some custom threshold criteria.

 

Thanks in advance!

These are SiS error codes not standard HTTP error codes. Possible statuses for URL monitors are listed below. For non-HTTP status code internal negative representation is show (these may vary depending on monitor’s configuration, e.g. if WinInet option is used a WinInet error code will be returned; refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa385465(v=vs.85).aspx)


•OK (HTTP 200)
•unknown host name (may show as -1)
•unable to reach server (may show as -1 or -998)
•unable to connect to server (may show as -1 or -998)
•timed out reading (may show as -1 or -998)
•content match error
•document moved (HTTP 302)
•unauthorized (HTTP 401)
•forbidden (HTTP 403)
•not found (HTTP 404)
•proxy authentication required (may show as -1 or -996)
•server error (HTTP 500)
•not implemented (HTTP 501)
•server busy (may show as -1 or -996)



Error -998 in general words means “no connection” while -996 means “connected, but something went wrong”. As an example think about SSH connections, you get -998 when you can’t connect at all, but get -996 when SiS can connect but can’t run necessary commands. This may be thrown if proxy or NTLM  authentication went wrong, for example.

Hi,

@ haytham_hosny & Mandarx
Thanks for info, but given URLs give details of only positive status codes, whether information of negative codes is needed.

@ kenneth.gonzalez: Thanks for detailed information, but i have seen other status codes in URL monitors, apart from this information, such as -991, -997, -995 etc.
So I was hoping for a proper documentation of this from HP.

Why does it mark status:

URL ContentErrorFound = -989        "content error found" ?

Hi Fidel,

this
..
Why does it mark status:
URL ContentErrorFound = -989        "content error found" ?
..
is not a lot information to start with!

In very general, if a monitor returns Status -989, it means 
(this is from SiteScope's Help):
..
This message is returned when an error string is found in the HTML content.
Check the HTML content by using the View Source command from a browser.
