HTTP input

Description

I could use an HTTP input that simply does a GET periodically and puts the response body in @message. My use-case for this is fetching an XML or JSON document from an API and parsing its fields for monitoring/trending/alerting.

Params:

  • url: the endpoint to retrieve

  • interval: how often to fetch

There's lots of ways to extend this... please comment below with other features you'd like to see.
