1. A method for using a dynamic response time to determine responsiveness of one or more network services on a server, the method comprising the steps of:

  • (a) determining, by a monitor, a response time for each of one or more network services responding to requests;

    (b) establishing, by the monitor, an average response time based on the determined response time for each of the one or more network services;

    (c) associating, by the monitor, with the established average response time a predetermined threshold for which the response time of the one or more network services may deviate from the average response time and maintain an indication of responsiveness;

    (d) monitoring, by the monitor, the response time of the one or more network services to one or more requests;

    (e) determining, by the monitor, that the response time of the one or more network services deviates from the average response time by the predetermined threshold; and

    (f) indicating, by the monitor, that one or more network services are unavailable.
