F5 monitors

I successfully completed the 4 day F5 LTM configuring v11 course. I am very happy with the amount of information covered and the teacher was very knowledgeable. Now that I’m back at work, I have already applied some of the knowledge I’ve obtained.

I was assisting another individual with setting up an http monitor that was using a send/receive string. We were having issues in getting the monitor to work. We struggled in where the CR/LF characters needed to be and how many to use. Each version of LTM seems to operate a little different and we found that out from the SOL10655 publication on the askf5 knowledge base. After going through some additional docs, we still couldn’t get the monitor to work. After trial and error, the monitor finally started working after we changed the HTTP version from 1.1 to 1.0.


Send String: GET /your/page/page.html HTTP/1.0\r\n Host: anynamewilldo\r\n\r\n
