Please can you describe what exactly do you want to monitor? Is it the proxy 
itself or the remote website health?

If you're testing via proxy and the request fails, then you cannot tell if the 
problem is on the proxy itself or behind it (network, etc.), hence testing 
other websites via proxy is suboptimal (due to extra indirection level) - the 
only thing which you can test reliably is the proxy itself. If you really want 
to make sure some site is generally available (not just via your proxy), then 
you should definitely bypass the proxy and test directly. The probe location 
depends what you really want to test - whether the network or the service on 
the remote host itself.

To send proxy request you can use for example generic send/request test to ask 
proxy for some specific page behind it, see manual for more details:

The HTTP request via proxy is similar to normal request, you just need to 
specify full URL in the request.
