Cluster member no longer active for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

Indeni will alert if the cluster member used to be active and is now standby or down.

Remediation Steps

Review the possible cause and troubleshoot.

How does this work?

This alert logs into the F5 device through SSH and retrieves the local member's state.

Why is this important?

Tracking the state of a cluster member is important. If a cluster member which used to be the active member of the cluster no longer is, it may be the result of an issue. In some cases, it is due to maintenance work (and so was anticipated), but in others it may be due to a failure in the firewall or another component in the network.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An unplanned change of a cluster members state could be detected by traffic disruptions. An administrator could verify the cluster member state by logging into the web interface of the device looking in the upper left corner. An active device would show "ACTIVE".
