Here's something I wrote to the mailing list on 11/24/08:

"If that one was useful, here's something that may be a bit better.  I added
a timeout for curl, otherwise it'll wait for a long time if the server
doesn't respond.  Also, this format produces a message formatted just like
Xymon's internal http test, including the time taken to grab the headers.
You could extract the "Seconds" line to determine if the response is a bit
slow.  With a bit more magic in Xymon's configs, you could even graph it..."

As far as curl is concerned, the url can be http:// or https://    -  you
don't need to do anything special.
