Logging virtual server state event up or down

Hi All,



I'm having a bit of curiosity, i can see a log at /var/log/ltm when a pool or pool member up/down.




May 22 14:46:53 slot1/lb01 notice mcpd[5902]: 01070638:5: Pool xxxxxxxx member /Common/ monitor status down. [ was up for 0hr:1min:15sec ]





But i cannot find any log when a Virtual server state is up or down. Is it just me or there isn't any event like that? or is there any way to create the event?

  • The virtual itself shouldn't ever be down unless you disable it. There is an ltm log entry when all members of a pool go offline, and if this pool is the only resource for the virtual then it is essentially down.





    Hope that helps,

  • Yes unless and util you dont have all pool members down you wont see a virtual going down..


  • HI John,I have one question . I was working on one issue found tha VIP has 2 nodes , showing inactive,down but nodes were still taking traffic .Once i disabled the node manually , then they stopped taking traffic.




    Any reason behind this ?










  • showing inactive,down but nodes were still taking traffic do you know if it was existing connection before node was marked down?
