Hi,

 

We facing syn cookie threshold crossing its limit and we can logs under ltm files. Now the counts gets normal automatically once traffic is normal. I am looking for something where I can monitor real time syn cookie count on the specific virtual server.

 

Can I achieve it? Is irule will help here?

Viewing virtual server statistics from TMSH should give you the information you are looking for: tmsh show ltm virtual <virtual-server-name> detail shows the following SYN Cookie statistics. (Note: This output is from a virtual server that does not have SYN Cookies activated at the moment, hence the 0 values.)

SYN Cookies Status not-activated Hardware SYN Cookie Instances 0 Software SYN Cookie Instances 0 Current SYN Cache 0 SYN Cache Overflow 0 Total Software 0 Total Software Accepted 0 Total Software Rejected 0 Total Hardware 0 Total Hardware Accepted 0

 

 

 

How we can monitor the syn cache counters

SNMP
