Why is this important?

This alert logs into the F5 load balancer and makes a lookup in the geo-ip database to verify it's functionality.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

To check the data base version, first log in to the unit with SSH. Then list the available files in "/shared/GeoIP". For each file, issue the following command: "geoip_lookup -f /shared/GeoIP/ ". Example: "geoip_lookup -f /shared/GeoIP/F5GeoIP.dat 8.8.8.8". If a record was returned the database is intact.
