Taking individual virtual folders out of a pool in LTM
I'm a Big-IP pre-newbie (i.e. this is a pre-sales question!)
I am looking at implementing a load-balancing solution in my organisation, not only to assist with application up-time from using a web-farm, but also from a view of taking apps offline to work on / upgrade them without affecting the users.
I've looked on various web pages on the BigIP site and that says about taking 'servers' out of a pool, but can I easily take individual virtual folders out of a pool? Here is my scenario:
Two servers (server1 and server2) have various apps on (e.g. app1, app2, app3) - imaginative names I know!
During normal operations requests to these apps will be distributed by the LTM.
I would like to be able to remove Server1\app1 from the pool but still have Server1 responding to requests for the other apps - is this possible?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
