Monitoring Method

Description

Example

HTTP 200 OK In this mode, a TCP connection is made to the content server as above, but after connection is made, a brief HTTP request is made to the content server.

A HTTP response is waited for and it is checked for the “200 OK” response code. If the “200 OK” response code is received, the content server is deemed to be up and running. If, for any reason, the “200 OK” response code is not received, including timeouts, failure to connect, etc. then the content server is regarded as down.

This monitoring method can only really be used with HTTP and Accelerate HTTP service types, although if a Layer 4 Service Type is in use for an HTTP server, it could still be used if SSL is not in use on the content server, or is handled appropriately by the “Content SSL” facility.

Name:

200OK

Description

Check production web site

Monitoring Method:

HTTP 200 OK

Page Location:

/main/index.html

OR

Required Content:

N/A

HTTP Response In this mode, a connection and HTTP request/response are made/checked for as above, but instead of the “200 OK” response code being checked for, a custom text is searched for in both the HTTP headers, and the body of the HTTP response.

The text can be a whole header, part of a header, a line from part of a page, or just one word. If the text is found, the content server is deemed to be up and running.

This monitoring method can only really be used with HTTP and Accelerate HTTP service types, although if a Layer 4 Service Type is in use for an HTTP server, it could still be used if SSL is not in use on the content server, or is handled appropriately by the “Content SSL” facility.

TCP Half Monitors the associated server by sending a TCP SYN packet to the service. As soon as the monitor receives the SYN-ACK packet, the monitor marks the server as up.
