A check for one of my sites is set on 10 minutes, but I got a timeout error. I fixed it and I would like to re-check now to confirm that the site is back up, without having to wait 10 minutes for the next scheduled check. After the forced check, the next check would then be 10 minutes later. So basically just speeding up the next check.
Perhaps, as an anti-spam measure, only accept a forced re-check if the last check is more than 30 seconds ago.
This is not an interesting feature for everyone so we won’t add this to the interface. Though if you need to do it some times, you can alter the URL or string match and set it back, changing this triggers a re-check.
