F5 Big-IP: Load Balancing Pools
The check queries the MIB tables of F5 BIG-IP loadbalancers (local traffic
managers) for the status of any load balancing pools. It gathers the number
of loadbalancers backing the pool and how many of those are working. It
doesn't currently honor the 'MinUpMembers' parameter that can be set to
trigger actions for the pool if too many members fail.
It supports devices running the 9.0 and above releases of the F5 OS. It's
tested against 9.3 devices.
If there are down or disabled nodes, the names of the nodes are
also printed in the service output. They are identified using the
following oids: ltmPoolMemberMonitorState, ltmPoolMemberMonitorStatus,
Name of the pool
One service is created for each pool defined on a system,
even if the pool is not enabled, as this is considered a temporary state.
