I have a pool with 2 servers 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 that runs multiple websites, i'm looking to have multiple monitors attached to the pool one for each url. the below send and receive strings.

 

Question is the below correct and what is the traffic flow in other works does it check the below url by sending to each server or will it resolve example1.test.co.uk to its external url and test aginst that

 

 

GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: example1.test..co.uk\r\nConnection: Close\r\n\r\n

 

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

 

any help would be good

Your question is not well written but this will just check the example1.test..co.uk as I think that you are using Virtual hosts on your server (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_hosting)?

 

 

Keep in mind that by default if a minitor goes down the pool member will go down but you can change this by using the option "Pool member availability":

Also you may create a transperant monitor if you want to check something that is not the pool member itself (used for firewalls or to check the real servers after API gateways):
