Bug#245972: spong-client: Spong HTTP check does not set User-Agent Header

Package: spong-client
Version: 2.7.7-3
Severity: wishlist


What about adding a User-Agent Header in the HTTP queries spong sends

A simple

"$method $urlpath HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: $hname:$port\r\nUser-Agent: Spong\r\n\r\n", 10 );

in line /usr/share/spong/Spong/Network/plugins/check_http:45

would add one, so website admins can filter spong queries from their
webserver statistics (e.g. IgnoreAgent Spong* for webalizer).

Best regards,
