Server down check

Andrej Simko Mar 20, 2017 01:18PM UTC

It would be very good to have some sort of keep-alive functionality to ping server whether it is still up, and depending on the pre-set response by user (e.g. custom error message), it would pause Active scanning until the ping is a success, or user starts it again after making sure the environment is working.
On a "volatile" environment, the Active scanner scans until it is finished, ignoring the state of the server (if some specific error page is set to all requests).
I know that as a part of session management session checking can be done, I'm not aware of a possibility to stop/pause active scanner in case of server-side issues (ideally a user pre-defined).

Thanks for this suggestion. We’re planning to provide more capabilities in terms of fully automated crawl-and-scan, and as part of this we will consider ways that we can suspend / throttle the scan in situations where the target application is volatile.
