    I need to monitor Orion Uptime...


      I have multiple datacenters servicing customers across the time-zones in the U.S. and also in the U.K. each datacenter houses about 10 to 25 pieces of mission critical schizzle that we use Orion/SolarWinds to track and alert us. I'm the new IT manager and I'm also a developer of renown. I've got legions of fembots, cybergoats and a greed for evil that runs deep. Why I even once held the moon... {Okay, never mind all that.}


      So I have A, B, C, D datacenters monitored by SolarWinds and it's great. However, if SolarWinds goes down I have no way of knowing. See below for things I'm trying that don't work.


      Does anyone know if there's an easier way to do this? I have to get a meaningful response from solarwinds that contains sometime of login validation or something that let's me know it's working and then starts screaming like a banshee if it stops.


      Is there an easy way to do this that Google just won't tell me?





      I read several times here that I could do something like this:



      The above doesn't work in IE or Chrome. Does anyone know why it wouldn't?


      My code won't work either.

                  using (var client = new WebClient())


                      var contents = client.DownloadString("https://orion.domain.com/Login.aspx?AccountID=domain\user&Password=abcd1234");



                      if (contents.Contains("username.value"))


                          return true;



                  return false;
