I proudly have my sticky web server farm up and running after many rounds of questions in this forum :o)
I currently am probing its servers by ckecking TCP 80 only, but each server has more than one web service, so from time to time the programmer needs to move a particular web service for maintenance purposes, while at the same time the remaining web services would still be working.
So I am planning to build more specific probes, one per web service or destination URL. Since this will be my first time building one such probe, I am looking for advice.
The following image is a wireshark snapshot of the request to the VIP and its service http://10.150.3.30/iwsupport
And the next image is the answer from the ACE on behalf of one server:
Based on this information, I think that the following probe should be enough:
probe http IWSUPPORT
passdetect interval 5
request method get url /iwsupport
expect status 200 200
¿Is the previous probe OK for my purpose?
I would appreciate your hints/advice if possible.
