Configuring health checks

In server load balancing deployments, the system uses health checks to poll the members of the real server pool to test whether an application is available. You can also configure additional health checks to poll related servers, and you can include results for both in the health check rule. For example, you can configure an HTTP health check test and a RADIUS health check test. In a web application that requires user authentication, the web server is deemed available only if the web server and the related RADIUS server pass the health check.

In link load balancing deployments, the health check can poll either the ISP link group member itself or a “beacon” server that is deployed on the other side of the ISP link. A beacon is an IP address that must be reachable in order for the link to be deemed available. A beacon can be any IP address, such as a main office, core router, or virtual server at another data center.

If you expect a backend server is going to be unavailable for a long period, such as when it is undergoing hardware repair, it is experiencing extended down time, or when you have removed it from the server farm, you can improve the performance of the FortiADC system by setting the status of the pool member to Disabled, rather than allowing the system to continue to attempt health checks.

Predefined health check configuration objects describes the predefined health checks. You can get started with these or create custom objects.

Predefined health check configuration objects

Predefined Description

LB_HLTHCK_HTTP

Sends a HEAD request to the server port 80. Expects the server to return an HTTP 200.

LB_HLTHCK_HTTPS

Sends a HEAD request to the server port 443. Expects the server to return an HTTP 200.

LB_HLTHCK_ICMP

Pings the server.

LB_HLTHCK_TCP_ECHO

Sends a TCP echo to server port 7. Expects the server to respond with the corresponding TCP echo.

Before you begin:

  • You must have a good understanding of TCP/IP and knowledge of the services running on your backend servers.
  • You must know the IP address, port, and configuration details for the applications running on backend servers. For some application protocol checks, you must specify user credentials.
  • You must have Read-Write permission for Load Balance settings.

After you have configured a health check, you can select it in the SLB server pool, LLB link group, or GLB server configuration.

To configure a health check:
  1. Go to Shared Resources > Health Check.
  2. Click Create New to display the configuration editor.
  3. Select one of the following options:
    • ICMP
    • TCP Echo
    • TCP
    • HTTP
    • HTTPS
    • DNS
    • RADIUS
    • SMTP
    • POP3
    • IMAP4
    • RADIUS Accounting
    • FTP
    • Oracle
    • TCP Half Open Connection

Health check configuration

Settings Guidelines

General

Name

Configuration name. Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, _, and -. No spaces.

After you initially save the configuration, you cannot edit the name.

Type

Select a type of health check.

Destination Address Type

  • IPv4
  • IPv6

Destination Address

IP address to send health check traffic.

In server load balancing deployments, if you do not specify an IP address, the real server IP address is used. You might configure IP address for a health check if you are configuring a combination of health checks to poll related servers.

In link load balancing deployments, if you do not specify an IP address, the destination IP address is the address of the gateway. You can configure IP address if you want to test connectivity to a beacon on the other side of the gateway, or if you want to test whether service traffic is allowed to pass through the link.

Hostname

For HTTP or HTTPS health checks, you can specify the hostname (FQDN) instead of the destination IP address. This is useful in VM environments where multiple applications have the same IP address.

Interval

Seconds between each health check. Should be more than the timeout to prevent overlapping health checks. The default is 10.

Timeout

Seconds to wait for a reply before assuming that the health check has failed. The default is 5.

Up Retry

Attempts to retry the health check to see if a down server has become available. The default is 1.

Down Retry

Attempts to retry the health check to see if an up server has become unavailable. The default is 1.

  • Remote CONNECT—Use HTTP CONNECT to test both the proxy server response and remote server application availability. If you select this option, you can configure an HTTP request within the tunnel. For example, you can configure an HTTP GET/HEAD request to the specified URL and the expected response.

In SLB deployments, a health check port configuration specifying port 0 acts as a wildcard.The port for health check traffic is imputed from the real server pool member.

In LLB and GLB deployments, specifying port 0 is invalid because there is no associated configuration to impute a proper port. If your health check port configuration specifies port 0, you will not be able to use it in an LLB or GLB configuration.

In SLB deployments, a health check port configuration specifying port 0 acts as a wildcard.The port for health check traffic is imputed from the real server pool member.
