Force node offline from CLI

I'm scripting a way to disable some specific nodes nightly, the virtual servers relating to them are assigned persistency profiles with default timeout and TCP profile with indefinite idle timeout.


Is anyone aware of a way touse "forced offline" for a node from the command line using the bigpipe command?



Running BigIP LTM 9.4.7

  • Hi Will,



    Here is a post with relevant info for this:





    You can use 'b node down' to set to forced offline. You can reset the stats for a node by running 'b node stats reset' and then check for active connections using 'b node stats' and check the "cur" total.



    To set the node to disabled (Only persistent or active connections allowed), you can use 'b node session disable/enable'.
