https monitoring string

Hi There,

I wish to clarify the https monitor profile send string. I have a live https virtual server setup. When I was looking at the configuration of it I saw the monitoring profile set with type:HTTPS and Parent Monitor profile:https. The send string configured was as below.

 

GET /ReportServer HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: xyz.par.ab\r\nConnection: Close\r\n\r\n

 

I came to know that there is a way to test the https response via curl command in F5, but for the above send string how can I decode the exact URL that would be reached out by F5 for health monitoring.

 

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

 

From the string, it would be xyz.par.ab/ReportServer path on https port. You can try this path using curl command through cli on F5.

 

curl https://xyz.par.ab/ReportServer

Thanks Mayor for the reply.

I'm till skeptical on the URL because I don't anywhere that is calling the host IP address xyz.par.ab is the domain name.

What is the pool status where this monitoring profile is configured? /or you are only seeing this custom monitor profile which is no where configured yet.

The pool is up configured with this custom profile. Also when they did the maintenance on the member I see the node was marked down, hence the health monitoring working perfectly
