Check pool status in different vip



I was wondering if there is a way of checking the current pool of a different vip than the irule is applied to. I dont want to know whether a pool is up or down, i want to know what pool is actually the default pool for a different vip.

  • Hi sidiov,



    You want to check the default pool of a different Virtual Server for status? Is that correct?



    Just out of curiosity, what are you going to do with the information if you can get it?



    You can use the [LB::server pool] to get the default pool of the current Virtual Server but I have never tried to verify the status of another Virutal Server's Default Pool. You could probably check the pool availability with the active_members command, but would have to specify the pool name (not sure if you could get it dynamically).




  • I think sidiov wants to bea able to determine the default pool name for a different virtual server. The only solution I can think of is to build a datagroup of virtual server names and their default pool as a name=value datagroup. You could use a shell script called from crontab to update the entries. You could then use the class command to do the lookup.
