My backend real server hosts a web service that sends a string '200' to
indicate the server is up. I need to check for this string as part of
health probe before establishing connection with this server. I am using
check_http plugin as below for this purpose but the FarmGuardian status
is always down. Kindly advise.


check_http -w 9 -c 9 -H HOST -s '200' -p PORT


Cheers, Arun
