Python

If you are already using the requests library, it's convenient to also use it here:

# using requests:
import requests
requests.get("https://cronmon.science.ru.nl/ping/your-uuid-here")

Otherwise, you can use the urllib standard module.

# urllib with python 3.x:
import urllib.request
urllib.request.urlopen("https://cronmon.science.ru.nl/ping/your-uuid-here")
# urllib with python 2.x:
import urllib
urllib.urlopen("https://cronmon.science.ru.nl/ping/your-uuid-here")

You can include additional diagnostic information in the in the request body (for POST requests):

# Passing diagnostic information in the POST body:
import requests
requests.post("https://cronmon.science.ru.nl/ping/your-uuid-here", data="temperature=-7")
