Is there a recommended standard for http health probes in terms of interval and passdetect interval timings, i.e. should the passdetect interval always be less than the interval or visa versa? Can a http probe be 'mis-configured', i.e. return a 'false positive' by configuring an interval timeout thats 'incompatible' with the device it's polling?
I have a http probe for a serverfarm consisting of two Apache http servers and get intermittent 'server reply timeout' probe failures. I'm keen to ensure that the configuration of the probe isn't at fault so I can be confident that a failed probe indicates a problem with the server and not my configuration.
The probe is currently configured as below:-
probe http http-apache
passdetect interval 15
passdetect count 6
request method get url /cs/images/ACE.html
expect status 200 304
Any advice on the subject woud be gratefully received.
