Create a cluster to monitor status code errors. Time, 2-3 minutes.
Track 400, 500, and other status error codes
Step 1: Create a cluster
Start by clicking on “new cluster” on the all clusters screen. The time needed to build the cluster will vary depending on the number of pages. A cluster of 300 pages can take about 1 minute. But the good thing is, this is automated so you don’t have to wait.
Use the Http Status rule to include whichever status code you wish.
Step 2: Monitor results
Whenever you see a spike, review the clusters and see what happened and why. The implication of a status code error varies depending on what code you are monitoring. For reference, here is an overview of what the codes mean.
- 1XX – informational
- 2XX – success
- 3XX – redirection
- 4XX – client error
- 5XX – server error
