The HTTP monitor connects to a HTTP server, sends the given request, waits for a response, and then disconnects.

URL Query String:  This is the page on the server the monitor should try to access (i.e. index.html, not http://www.example.com/index.html).  For the default page, the query string can be left empty.  If the request type is set to Post, you will need to provide the Post variables (i.e. page.aspx?var1=a&var2=b).
Use HTTPS:  Check this box if the monitor should connect using SSL/TLS.
Request Type:  The HTTP request type - Head, Get, or POST.
Server Port:  The port the monitor should connect to.  The default HTTP port is 80.  Valid port numbers are 1 to 65535.
Interval:  This is the number of minutes between the monitor queries.  It must be between 1 and 1440 (one day).
Timeout:  This is the number of milliseconds before the monitor query is considered a failure.
Retries:  If the monitor fails, this number of times the monitor will attempt to reconnect before notifying you of the failure.  The retry attempts occur at one minute intervals, regardless of the interval setting.  The monitor will report the failure immediately in the Retries value is set to zero.
