F5 Big-IP: Load Balancing Pools

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: SNMP

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, ltmPoolMemberSessionStatus


The check collects a list of the pools defined on a system. It will include non-enabled ones, as this is considered a temporary state.
