Pool member(s) unavailable for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

Indeni will alert if a pool member which should be available is not.

Remediation Steps

Determine why the members are down and resolve the issue as soon as possible.

How does this work?

This alert uses the iControl REST interface to extract the node states on the device.

Why is this important?

A node disabled by an administrator results in reduced pool capacity or in worst case, downtime. Disabling nodes is common during ie. a maintenance but it is easily forgotten. This metric would warn administrators when a node is not ready to accept traffic.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

Login to the device's web interface and click on "Local Traffic" -> "Pools" -> "Statistics". This would show a list of the pools, their members and their states. In case the configuration is divided in multiple partitions changing to the "All [Read-only]" partition is recommended.
