VIP ping no response on a CSS 11050

Our management system pings devices to verify they are active. The VIP often drops pings (mostly in the morning) and then recovers after a few minutes. The web load balancing never stops and the services are always active. The real addresses on the CSS never drop pings.

Re: VIP ping no response on a CSS 11050

Both TAC and local Cisco people have told us that VIPs do not reliably respond to ICMP, which is exactly what you describe.

If I were you, try to change your test so that it executes a script (perl maybe) that does a tcp connection rather than relying on icmp.

Good luck,

Hi - to go around you can use a more simple thing. snmp monitoring is a better way to monitor your css if scripts are not handy enough.

regards
