Hi All,

Is there any option in ACE to probe the application based on its state,

if the application goes hang, the tcp ports are still open and hence the VIP is alive.So the ACE always has the VIP active.

Is there an option to probe the server based on the application status.

Please inform me since it is a very urgent requiremnt for us.


Aslam ....

Hi Aslam,

To a large degree this depends on your application - you haven't said what it is. There are built-in probes for some applications and additional sample probe scripts that may be installed.

If there isn't a suitable script already, then you have the option of writing custom code in Tcl.

On ACE 2.x you have SNMP probes.

If your aplication has OIDs to report the state the you can use SNMP probes.
