Daemons monitoring (13.x)

Hi,

I'm looking for some clarification on deamons monitoring in 13.x.

Until 12.x this was automatically done by the system (https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K69933022)

  • The BIG-IP 12.x software branch uses the runsv utility to monitor specific daemons. The runsv utility monitors specific daemons and will restart the daemon in the event of a system failure.

I couldnt find any related information for 13.x. In general we just have to decide if we have to monitor specific deamons ourselves or not. If this is "built-in" even better.

 

Appreciate your feedback.

Yes, more recent releases of the BIG-IP software (through 15.1.x, anyway) still use the "runsv" facility.
