How does HTTP Netcheck work in SysOrb?

The IP address which SysOrb connects to, when performing a HttpCheck (or any other NetCheck), is given by the content of the field "Node dns-name/ip-address or Agent name" on the "Edit node" page.

The HTTP protocol is special compared to all the other NetCheck protocols, in that it allows multiple "virtual servers" to share one IP-address. The HttpCheck specific field "URL to check" can be used to select between virtual servers on the one IP address as given by the field on the "Edit node" page.

If the the HTTP check in SysOrb fails SysOrb will report the error code it could be e.g. Bad Request which correspond to HTTP status code 400. For reference a list of HTTP status code can be found here
