Configuring HTTP Probe

Hi All,

I want to configure a new HTTP Probe. The application server was installed with the following URL: http://lta43:8011/HealthApp/health.txt

The goal is ACE can monitor this URL.

What would be the way to configure the Probe in the ACE?

Regards,

Jaime.

Re: Configuring HTTP Probe

Hi,

I think you need to look at this URL

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/ace_appliances/vA3_1_0/configuration/quick/guide/h_probe.html#wp1041335

It explains how to do it for CLI and GUI

HTH, please rate if it does.

Re: Configuring HTTP Probe

Hi Jaime,

The minimum configuration you would need is the following:

probe http
  port 8011
  request method get url /HealthApp/health.txt
  expect status 200 200

As you can see, I didn't configure the hostname of the server anywhere. That's because the probe will be associated to a real server, and the IP address will be the one of the server it's checking.

There are also several other parameters you can configure the probe, such as timers or headers to be inserted into the request, so I would recommend you to have a look at the relevant chapter of the configuration guide:
