Website Monitoring

Splunk Cloud
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
Monitor websites to detect downtime and performance problems. This app uses a modular input that can be setup easily (in 5 minutes or less).

Please consider financially supporting me in the developing this app in order to promote continued development; see https://github.com/sponsors/LukeMurphey


  • Uptime Calculation: the Status History dashboard provides information about past failures and calculates the website's uptime percentage
  • Status Monitoring Dashboard: provides the response time for your monitored websites and provides a historical analysis of the site's responsiveness
  • Email Outage Alerting: get an emailed alert when your website is down (responds too slowly or is returning an error)
  • Change History Dashboard: provides information regarding when the monitored pages changed


Initial setup

Once you install the app, it will ask you to set it up on the app configuration page. The setup only contains options related to configuring a proxy server. If no proxy server is used, you can just press save.

Creating an input

You will need to create an input to define the websites that you would like to monitor. You can setup a new input using Splunk's manager at Settings » Data Inputs » Website Availability Check. The input is straightforward. You can ignore the "Configuration" parameter unless you want to use different proxy servers for different inputs.


See the links below for answers to frequently asked questions:

What kind of response time from my website should I expect?"

I configured an input but it isn't working, how do I debug it?

How do I use different proxies for different inputs?

How do I allow non-admins to make new website monitoring inputs?

More Information

This project is open source. See GitHub for the source or LukeMurphey.net for more information.
