Ignoring the Upper Limit on Client Connections for Monitor Probes

Aug 29, 2013

Depending on considerations such as the capacity of a physical server, you can specify a limit on the maximum number of client connections made to any service. If you have set such a limit on a service, the NetScaler appliance stops sending requests to the service when the threshold is reached and resumes sending connections to the service after the number of existing connections falls to within the limits. You can configure the NetScaler to skip this check when it sends monitor-probe connections to a service.

Note: You cannot skip the maximum-client-connections check for an individual service. If you specify this option, it applies to all the monitors bound to all the services configured on the NetScaler appliance.

To set the Skip MaxClients for Monitor Connections option by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set lb parameter -monitorSkipMaxClient (ENABLED|DISABLED)

Example

set lb parameter -monitorSkipMaxClient enabled

To set the Skip MaxClients for Monitor Connections option by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Configure Load Balancing Parameters.
  2. Select Skip MaxClients for Monitoring Connections.
