Problem this snippet solves:

This EAV takes seven option values in the argument field - database name, username, password, table and colum. The default for these areguments is 'healthcheck' The seventh optional parameter is the timeout which defaults to 3 seconds. The purpose of this script is to interact with the database by dropping the last entry really the only entry, insert a new entry based off a random number and then selects and validates that random number generated and inserted into the database. This seems a little repetitive but what the heck....

Code :

#!/bin/bash
# based on original contribution by kirkbauer
# You need to add a test user to your MySQL database as follows:
# mysql -u root -h W.X.Y.Z -p
# > GRANT SELECT ON mysql.* TO healthcheck IDENTIFIED BY 'healthcheck';
# > flush privileges;

# This requires the mysql command on the BIG-IP which is only installed with
# version 9.2.0 and higher, only on the BIG-IP 6400 and higher, and only
# when installing on the hard drive (not compact flash). The reason is that
# MySQL is only part of the ASM/WebAccelerator modules and although you don't
# need them licensed or activated you need them installed. By utilizing only 
# the mysql-client I was able to get this to work on a BIG-IP 1500 but this is not
# supported.
