script not working under v16

Hi,

 

To create an external monitoring script (internal does not give enough flexibility) I downloaded a template somewhere, also downloaded a trial of andd this thingy

Unfortunately our production loadbalancers turn out to have an older version (v12) running than the one I downloaded (v16). And appaerantly The NODE_NAME variable, which worked so fine in my own setup, is not present there, hence the script does not work.

 

Is there anything I can do to make this script on F5 v12 go to a target without having to setup each healthmonitor by hand en giving the name/ip as extra fixed parameter? Is the NODE_NAME variable or the ipaddress available in a different variable name or something like that?

Well the NODE_NAME is one of the predefined variables i what i think. But if its not working in v12, then you have to supply it as argument or update your script to define that variable manually.

 

Can you put logging of $NODE_NAME in your script to see if it gives you something in different format compared to v12 & v16 or does it not get defined at all.

Well, I do not have access to that F5 myself unfortunately, but as far as I can see it is empty. The script did run but the url to be tested failed because it was not complete. I could test if I could still download a trial of of vs 12 somewhere?

Yes, you can download the v12, spin it up. Create that monitor, create that pool, make sure its reachable. Then you can turn on logging to see what's happening... Good Luck 🙂

 

Sorry dont have v12 currently to test it out.

Downloaded the V12. Go it to work 🙂 The NODE_NAME was available however, some other changes in the script were necessary.
