Health Check in Logical Servers

Jump to solution

Hello, is there any option to change the health check method in logical servers?

Currently, the gateway executes ICMP echo requests to check the destination server status. The possible problem here is that a remote server could have the application (e.g. apache)  down but still respond to ICMP, so the traffic would continue to be routed to that server.

Checking a port could be a better option than ICMP but I can't find if its possible.

Regards!

I believe if you use HTTP (versus other), it will actually check with HTTP instead of ICMP.
Other definitely uses ICMP and there's no way to change that, as I recall.
