Answered Question
Dec 29th, 2009

hi,

i try to configure HTTP health probe at ACE 4710 , software version A3(2.3) but i found the following :

Previous versions:

Request method: N/A, GET, Head

In version A3 (2.3)

Request method: GET, Head

why they remove N/A option ?

please find attached image

I have this problem too.

what was the N/A doing for you ?

It's either GET or HEAD.

Also, is this a GUI issue only ?

the following configuration was working before, but know it is not :

probe http app-http
  port 80
  interval 15
  faildetect 10
  passdetect interval 2
  passdetect count 1
  expect status 200 201
  open 10

can you please tell how to configure http health probe for the following site using get method (as example):

http://www.ccie.com.sa

best regards,

I configured your probe :

probe http http1

  interval 15

  faildetect 10

  passdetect interval 2

  passdetect count 1

  expect status 200 201

And then checked the result

switch/Admin(config-probe-http)# do show probe http1 de

probe       : http1
type        : HTTP
state       : INACTIVE
description :
----------------------------------------------
   port      : 80      address     : 0.0.0.0         addr type  : -
   interval  : 15      pass intvl  : 2               pass count : 1
   fail count: 10      recv timeout: 10
   http method      : GET
   http url         : /
   conn termination : GRACEFUL
   expect offset    : 0         , open timeout     : 10
   expect regex     : -
   send data        : -

                       --------------------- probe results --------------------
   probe association   probed-address  probes     failed     passed     health
   ------------------- ---------------+----------+----------+----------+-------
   serverfarm  : vmware-http
     real      : vmware-27[80]
                       192.168.40.27   0          0          0          INIT

   Socket state        : RESET
   No. Passed states   : 0         No. Failed states : 0
   No. Probes skipped  : 0         Last status code  : 0
   No. Out of Sockets  : 0         No. Internal error: 0
   Last disconnect err :  -
   Last probe time     : Never
   Last fail time      : Never
   Last active time    : Never

As you can see, the default method is GET and the default url is /

Again, there is no method N/A.  Since there is a default value it is normal to see it and not N/A.

Check the last status code (in red above) to see what is the server response code.

Give us the output of the show probe detail if you can't figure out the reason for the failure.

Gilles.

thanks for your help

I just noticed that I am getting status code 404 page not found because the web server (IIS) configured to listen to Name only not to ip address

if ip put : www.ccie.com.sa  : it is working

if ip put: 192.168.198.1  : it is not working

can i put the complete URL in get request like the following :

/www.ccie.com.sa/
