Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

SAM HTTP/HTTPS Monitor user agent

Table of contents

Updated July 10th, 2016

Overview

When you visit a webpage, your browser sends the user-agent string to the server hosting the site that you are visiting. This string indicates which browser you are using, the version number, and details about your system, such as operating system and version. The web server can use this information to provide content that is tailored for your specific browser.

Environment

All SAM versions

Detail

By default, the HTTP/HTTPS monitors use the MSIE 6.0 user agent. This value can be changed if choose to have the monitor leverage another browser other than IE. The value to change is User Agent.
