on ACE (Version 1) i can make HTTP Probes via GET or HEAD.

When i use a HEAD Request only the HTTP Code is checked.

When i use the GET Request the body is also retruned and i can search for a string in the body. Also there seems to be ha hash calculated.

Is it possible to disable the hash validation and ony to check for a string in the body?

This would be helpull on dynamic pages where only a specified string should be checked.

by default no hash is calculated.

(config-probe-probe_type) hash

To configure the ACE to dynamically generate the MD5 hash value or manually configure the value, use the hash command. By default, no hash value is configured on the ACE. Use the no form of this command to configure the ACE to no longer compare the referenced hash value to the computed hash value.

hash [value]

no hash
