HTTP or TCP probe

Hi,

Can anybody help me to know where do we need to use HTTP probe and TCP probe?

In other words for what kind of requirement we have to use HTTP and for what kind of request we have to use TCP?

Regards,

T.K

HTTP or TCP probe

Hi,

An application probe like HTTP will be used in case when we desire to check the response of the webserver for a particular request and based on that we direct our traffic to that server. Like, many a times due to some errors web server reply to http request with a error response like service not available etc. At that using a simple TCP probe will result in outage. Thus using HTTP probe we can remove all such web servers from our loadbalancing path.
