If this is your first time setting up uptime monitoring, we recommend starting with our Introduction to uptime monitoring .
An HTTP status code monitor checks your URLs for an HTTP success status code (2XX) with a selected frequency. If the URL doesn't return this code, the monitor creates an Incident and alerts the current on-call person.
Creating an HTTP status code based monitor:
- Go to Monitors → Create monitor.
- Enter your URL or IP address in the URL to monitor text field.
- Click Create monitor.
