I'm using Amazon CloudWatch in order to configure some alarms on my EC2 Intance.
My main concern is the system downtime. I configure a Status Check for the server. However it seems that the 'status check' only checks if the server is on and operating. What I really need to know if the server is able to reply http request, not just if it's on or not.
How can I configure an alarm in cloudwatch to check status of the system using this parameter?
