Would anyone have come across a simular issue and maybe help with a root cause as our application team are not finding anything. Is there anything I can do to further prove it's not the CSS.
The service on the CSS for WEB02 checks to see if the asp page(below) is alive, it does this by sending a request to the WEB02 server every 5 seconds checking for the following:
ip address 192.168.11.116
keepalive method get
keepalive type http
keepalive uri "/General/GenAppAlive.asp?ControlAction=InitialLoad"
There are a number of retries with a max of three failures before the services is considered to be down on the Load Balancer. Throughout this process the services goes from ALIVE -> DYING to eventually DOWN.
What I see from an ethereal capture:
The WEB02 confirms back to the service on the Load Balancer with a HTTP/1.1 200 ok (text/html) and this confirm that the service is OK. I see at the time the alarm is received that this HTTP/1.1 200 ok (text/html) is missing from the sessions, whereby the packet is not returned from WEB02.
The ASP page connects to ?PCGenAppServerTime.dll? on the App Server as part of the initial load process when called.
Any assistances here much appreciated.
