irule to icmp remote monitor to mark pool offline?

Hi all,



I'm new to this and trying to figure out if its possible to make an irule monitor a remote resource (checking to see if something beyond a firewall in internet is up really) and if the monitor can't get to it marks the pool offline.



any help greatly appreciated

  • unsure if I'm explaining it good enough but I need to monitor something on the outside of the vlan the node/pool is in, in other words, really client side. I need to be able to mark a pool offline if I am unable to get to an address on the internet. any help very appreciated
  • You can set up a monitor with an alias destination IP and optionally port. If you assign that to the pool, the pool will be marked up/down based on the availability of the remote IP:port you've specified in the alias section of the monitor.
