Enable and disable monitors

By default, monitors bound to services and service groups are enabled. When you enable a monitor, the monitor begins probing the services to which it is bound. If you disable a monitor bound to a service, the state the service is determined using the other monitors bound to the service. If the service is bound to only one monitor, and if you disable the monitor, the state of the service is determined using the default monitor.

To enable a monitor by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

enable lb monitor <monitorName>

Example:

enable lb mon monitor-HTTP-1

To enable a monitor by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Monitors.
  2. Select a monitor, and from the Action list, select Enable or Disable.

To disable a monitor by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:
