We have two CSS 11503's running version 8.10 which are load balancing ssl (no offload) accross multiple FARM's for various services. The current keepalive is ap-kal-ssl (default sending hello expecting hello).
This is no longer adequate as the application fails while the port is still active resulting in the keepalive marking the server as Alive and traffic being sent to a server that cannot provide service.
I would like have a script that can perform the same function as the existing ap-kal-ssl keepalive checking the ssl service as well as check the landing page of the site, for example, (no authentication required as it would be the login page).
Is this possible, and if so any assitance with the scripting would be greatly appreciated.
