Recheck failed monitors

You can use synthetic monitoring's rechecks to rerun a failed monitor check. All rechecks begin immediately at a single location. This makes it easy to verify a single failing location or result.

Additionally, all recheck data appears as a standard monitor datapoint and result. This allows you to view monitor checks in context with the overall monitor performance.

View and recheck failed monitor results

Use the fa-redoRun check buttons appear on monitor result details pages if:

  • The result has a FAILED status.
  • The result occurred in the past 24 hours.
  • The monitor has not been edited since the result occurred.

To view a failed monitor's results and recheck it:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > Synthetics > (select a monitor).
  2. From the monitor's Failures page, select a link from the table.

    OR

    From the monitor's Results page, use the filter or sort options to select a location indicating Results: Failed.

  3. Review the failed check details, then click fa-redo Run check.
  4. To view the updated status, click See results.
Click Run check to recheck the monitor's status
one.newrelic.com > Synthetics > (select a monitor) > Failures > (select a check failure): To view details about a failed monitor check, click fa-redo Run check.

When you click fa-redo Run check, New Relic triggers an immediate recheck using the result's location and the monitor's current configuration. Once the job is completed, the button will display the recheck's status (Success or Failure). To view the recheck Results page again, click the button again.

Running a recheck will also log a synthetic audit event that you can query using NRQL. For example:

SELECT * from NrAuditEvent 
WHERE actionIdentifier = 'synthetics_monitor.re_check_job'
