System Center Web Application Availability Monitoring provides a great capability to monitor your web application from multiple perspectives and report on availability SLAs with ease.

Sadly if you leverage ad authentication in your web application you are unable to see beyond the http 401 request to authenticate. The project provide a simple way to monitor in depth and confirm that required text exists in the output of an AD authenticated or anonymous web url.

To leverage this solution, simple deploy this web application and use per the example on the homepage.
