Node Status Display at the pool level

When I force a node off-line at the node level (whether using the command line or the GUI) it only displays as disabled when you select the node at the pool level. From the node level it shows as off-line. If I disable the node at the pool level it displays as off-line when you select the node. Is this expected behavior? If so why?

A node is a logical object on the load balancer that identifies the IP address of a physical resource on the network, at a Global Level.

  • Local Traffic -> Nodes

 

A Pool makes use of "Global" nodes. If an IP address(Node) does not exist, when a pool is created, the Node will automatically be created.

 

If a Node is Disabled at a Global Level, all pools that use that IP address will be disabled.

Thank you for your answer Shaun,. I understand that the nodes will be disabled in the pool when disabled/forced off-line at the global level. My question is if it forced off-line at the global level; when you select the node at the pool level should it show as disabled or forced off-line as is shown at the global level?
