Monitoring GSLB Sites

The NetScaler appliance uses MEP or monitors to determine the state of the GSLB sites. You can configure a GSLB site to always use monitors (the default), use monitors when MEP is down, or use monitors when both the remote service and MEP are down. In the latter two cases, the NetScaler appliance stops monitoring when MEP returns to the UP state.

To configure monitor triggering by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set gslb site <siteName> –triggerMonitor (ALWAYS | MEPDOWN | MEPDOWN\_SVCDOWN)


set gslb site Site-GSLB-North-America –triggerMonitor Always

To configure monitor triggering by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management> GSLB > Sites and double-click the site.
  2. In the Trigger Monitors drop-down list, select an option for when to trigger monitoring.
