Critical process(es) down (per VS) for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

Many devices have critical processes, usually daemons, that must be up for certain functions to work. Indeni will alert if any of these goes down.

Remediation Steps

Review the cause for the processes being down.

How does this work?

This script logs into the F5 unit via iControl REST and retrieves the status of running HA processes and verifies that all enabled services are up.

Why is this important?

This script logs into the F5 unit via iControl REST and retrieves the status of running HA processes and verifies that all enabled services are up.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

If for instance "snmpd" would stop working, an administrator could check the status of HA services by logging into the device through SSH, entering TMSH and executing the command "show sys ha-status all-properties". This would bring up a list of all HA processes and their status, including "snmpd".
