We have a farm and probe setup as follows:
probe ESS-QAT http
request method get url /irj/portal
expect status 200
no nat client
real 188.8.131.52 50100
real 184.108.40.206 51000
description decrypt VIP for ESS
virtual 172.16.11.115 tcp www
sticky 60 group 181
My question has to do with the probe used to check the health of the servers, and more so clarify my understanding of the probes behavior. You'll notice that the http probe doesn't have a port specified. To my understanding (based on reading the config guide), the HTTP probe will inheret (and therefore use) the ports attached to each of the real servers when performing the GET. That is perform a GET on 220.127.116.11:50100 and 18.104.22.168:51000 respectively. Is this correct?
When testing this, i noticed that the probe fails on both servers...i'm hoping i don't need to configure a TCL script to check the health of the servers given this configuration.
Note, usually we have both servers recieving connections on the same port number...however in this situation each server is recieving connections on different ports.
