keepalive uri for Directory and not file extension - CSS

Hi all,

I'm trying to define the keepalive uri for 1 service, based on the following criteria:


1 -

service esl0001-8878

ip address

port 8878

keepalive type http

keepalive port 8878

keepalive uri "/forum"


I've only found working examples with the uri sample, like "index.html", and other with extensions...

...none, with a directory in the url.

Best Regards,

The CSS will just used whatever string you configure to build the GET request.

If you want to configure a directory, it should work.

Tks for answer it Gilles,

As i remember, the "show service" for that keepalive type, shows a down service.

It's well configured ?, the keepalive string i gave in the config ?

Tks for your effort,

Best Regards,

The config is ok.

But you may have to do "/forum/" as my server sends a 301 redirect when doing just "/forum".

The CSS expects a 200 ok and would consider the server down if receiving any other response.

Thank you Gilles,

I already try it like u say... but it never comes up...

You are right once again, i saw it in the httpwatch, the redirect to /forum/, but as the content filter for a domain, we use url "//*", we could use some other thing in here, not related to the string only.

I already try changing the method from head to get, cause i read somewhere it could be the reason for not going up... no positive result.

I think i will try to convence the systems guys to apply a dummy file, like something.html .

Sorry for bothering you, but i realize that im only receiving a 302 redirect, for another url related for a SSO, (Single Sign On).

I try to configure the "keepalive http-rspcode 302" command, but not even that it seems to put the service up.

If i just put uri "/", it comes up.

Thanks once again.
