Ping validating favicon.ico

Hi,
I am test a endpoint to know that my application is running.
My url is like this:

https://${my-site}/management/info

The ping monitor is resulting in a 401 Error and saw in New Relic Panel that favicon.ico is deny, this is because favicon.ico is really a deny address in my application, but this is an API, does not have favicon.ico.
When I execute a request using Google Chrome, really the browser try to get a favicon.ico.
New relic also will require a favicon.ico? New Relic simules a browser request?

Bellow follow my error in new relic page.

Hi @charles.silva, you are correct, for consistency with other Synthetics monitor types, the user agent is identified as Google Chrome. Would it be possible to get a permalink to the monitor and I can take a closer look for you :slight_smile:

Hi @rdouglas, I remove my Synthetics data because we move our application to a private network, so, now I don not have this problems.
Thanks a lot!!!
