Unanswered Question


This is the current probe that I am using:

probe http http-probe

interval 3

passdetect interval 3

passdetect count 3

request method head

expect status 200 200

Someone told me that I should be using a more sophisticated web page to probe. If you agree with that statement, could someone please provide a sample config?

Thank you...

I have this problem too.

I'm not sure what your colleague meant by more sophisticated. When I've set up an HTTP probe I've asked that the server management team set up a simple static page on the server that can be tested. So in my probe I'd specify something like:

request method head url /serverhere.html

This enables the team to take a server out of service by renaming the page (e.g. to servernothere.html) without having to ask me to modify the ACE configuration. The server can then be tested without real users having access and brought back in when they're happy.
