Adding more keepalives

Unanswered Question

I've have several services defined like so:

service sclivelink002:81

ip address

port 81

keepalive frequency 2

keepalive retryperiod 2

keepalive port 2199

keepalive type tcp

protocol tcp

add ssl-proxy-list SSL1


My question is how can I add addition keepalive ports to this service. I want to monitor it via pings to port 80 as well. I've looked at the 'ap-kal-pinglist' scripts, but just not sure how to modify it for additional ports. What about defining a critical service, can I do that ?

I'm looking for something like:

keepalive port 80, 81, 2199

Any info. would be great.

The numbers in quotes, do I change them for my specific ports.

For ex)

set OUT-OF-SOCKETS "785"

set NO-CONNECT "774"

if ${ARGS}[#] "LT" "2"

socket connect host ${SERVICE} port ${TCP-PORT} tcp 2000

Also, how do I apply the script once created.

don't change anything.

Copy the script in a file and copy it to your CSS via ftp into the script directory.

You then call the script from the service and provide the parameters IP PORT1 PORT2 ....
