Binding Monitors to Services

Aug 31, 2016

After creating a monitor, you bind it to a service. You can bind one or multiple monitors to a service. If you bind one monitor to a service, that monitor determines whether the service is marked UP or DOWN. If you bind multiple monitors to a service, the NetScaler appliance checks all monitors bound to that service using a calculation that you control, and marks the service UP or DOWN depending on the results.

Note: The destination IP address of a monitor probe can be different than the server IP address and port.

To bind a monitor to a service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

bind lb monitor <monitorName> <ServiceName>


bind mon monitor-HTTP-1 Service-HTTP-1

To bind a monitor to a service by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Services.
  2. Open the service, and add a monitor.
