Maintenance page - hosted on LTM or redirect with fallback host - or both?
Does anyone have any opinions on which one is preferred, and why?
Currently, I'm using the fallback host method and I'm redirecting to a page hosted on AWS.
My setup includes about 70 virtual servers on a 3600 HA cluster - some are QA, some are non-http. I will likley have the need for multiple versions of the maintenance page, depending on the site content it fronts.
The one thing I do see as an advantage of the LTM hosted option is that an iRule code example shows a refresh option being used to automatically pull up the healthy site when it becomes available.
