Recommended CSM Probe Timers

Looks like 4 timer commands you can use on probes:

1) Interval - How often to normally Probe

2) Retries - How many consecutive normal interval probes have fail before marking server as failed

3) Failed - How often to probe after a server is failed to determine if it should be brought back online

4) Open - For TCP probes, how long to wait for a TCP socket to open.

What do you guys recommend for timer values.

Currently we're using 5-3-60-10

But, I'm wondering about the 10-second Open timer. 10 seconds for a TCP socket to open? That seems insanely long. I'm tempted to change it to 1 second.

Re: Recommended CSM Probe Timers

The default interval is 120 seconds and it would take 3 probes to fail before it would bring down the server. You can lowering this and also using the command "fail action purge" so when a server fails it forces the user to disconnect.
