HTTP 1.1 monitor multiple instances

I have a need to replace current multiple monitors with one instance of an HTTP. All of the gets resolve to the same page, however, the domains are different. Basically, I am looking for //login.html but, the domain could be or or



I read the sol article on creating HTTP monitors sol2167. It states 'However, in an HTTP 1.1 request, the Host header is required, although it may contain a null value.'



I take this to mean that the value can be anything and does not matter meaning I could something like in the get string for all different pools I have like below. Is this the case?



GET //login.html HTTP/1.1\r\ \r\nConnection:Close\r\n

  • Hi Valentine,



    If your web applications require a specific host header you'll need to create one monitor per host header. If they'll accept any host header you could specify a null host header value in an HTTP 1.1 send string or not specify the host header at all and use an HTTP 1.0 request:



    HTTP 1.0:


    GET /login.html HTTP/1.0\r\nConnection: close\r\n\r\n



    HTTP 1.1:


    GET /login.html HTTP/1.1\r\nConnection: close\r\nHost: \r\n\r\n
