Hi Chandler,

You could try using the curl probe to fetch a url, but to be honest it 
sounds to me like you would be better off looking into a monitoring 
suite like Nagios or Pandora. Smokeping is designed to monitor network 
latency, and does it very well, but if you want to monitor things at the 
application level then it really is not the best tool for the job.


Probably not the advice you wanted to hear I'm afraid but it sounds like 
  they would be more suited to your needs,
