Configuring GSS to detect failure based on a web page

Is it possible to configure GSS in a way that it is able to detect a failure based on web page/url? Is it possible to configure the GSS to detect a specific error page condition and redirect traffic accordingly? For eg: If the primary url serving an application is unavailable, can CSS redirect the traffic to secondary based on the URL?


Re: Configuring GSS to detect failure based on a web page

Direct Probing-Direct probing occurs between the GSS and DRP agents when the GSS creates a dynamic entry in the PDB as the result of receiving a new D-proxy IP address. Direct probing also occurs when you specify alternative IP addresses as targets for the proximity probing agents to obtain RTT data and add static entries in the PDB. The GSS initiates direct probing to the DRP agent when a request is made for a new D-proxy IP address entry. Through direct probing, the GSS automatically sends probe requests to the DRP agent in each zone to obtain initial probe information as quickly and efficiently as possible for the new entries in the PDB.
