Configuring active health monitoring is similar to creating health checks on other load-balancers.

When you associate an active health monitor with a pool, the pool members are monitored according to the active health monitor parameters. To configure an Active Health Monitor, perform the following steps:

  • Go to Networking -> Load balancing -> Monitors
  • Select monitor type image075
  • Click the Add (image076) icon and select HTTPS
  • Choose a name for the active monitor and enter Monitor Properties (please refer to the example below)
  • Configure Health check parameters withthe following values:
    3. HTTP Method
       GET
    4. HTTP Request URL
       /suite-api/api/deployment/node/status?services=api&services=adminui&services=ui (or /epops-webapp/health-check for EPOPS)
    5. HTTP Request Version
       1.1
    6. HTTP Response Code
       200, 204, 301
    7. HTTP Response Body
       ONLINE (upper case)
