POP3 Monitors fails

Hey guys,

 

 

On GTM I'm running 10.2.0, the POP3 monitors against cisco load balancer keep flapping Up and Down.

 

I tried different configuration as below. Notice the time it takes the monitor to success after the failure. it's somehow consistent for each case..

 

 

 

//Interval 20 sec ,Timeout 120 sec, Probe Timeout 5 >>>> Time to success about 16 sec after failure.

  • How is the routing set up between the two boxes? Can you run some simple ping and traceroutes against the host to ensure consistent connectivity between the two? From there you can move on to troubleahooting pop3..
