Error Type 7:File size error


This error type applies only to URLs, not to other Internet devices.

In order for Red Alert to monitor for this error condition, you must activate File Size Checking.

File Size Checking operates under one of two modes:

  • Notify when file size has changed
  • Notify when file size has not changed
When Red Alert retrieves an HTML page or other file from a Web server, it checks the file size provided in the Content-length header. Depending on the mode you have chosen, Error Type 7 is reported to you if the file size has or has not changed, as appropriate.

All error conditions are triple-checked before notifications are sent to you.

How to Use

See File Size Checking for instructions on how to activate or deactivate monitoring for this error condition.
