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.

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

- 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:
- Go to one.newrelic.com > Synthetics > (select a monitor).
From the monitor's Failures page, select a link from the table.
From the monitor's Results page, use the filter or sort options to select a location indicating Results: Failed.
- Review the failed check details, then click fa-redo Run check.
- To view the updated status, click See results.
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 (
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'
