The LTM Specialist is writing a custom HTTP monitor for a web application and has viewed the content by accessing the site directly via their browser. The monitor continually fails. The monitor configuration is: ltm monitor http /Common/exampleComMonitor { defaults-from /Common/http destination *:* interval 5 recv "Recent Searches" send "GET /app/feed/current\?uid=20145 HTTP/1.1\\r\\nHost:\\r\\nAccept-EncodinG. gzip, deflate\\r\\nConnection: close\\r\\n\\r\\n" time-until-up 0 timeout 16
A trace shows the following request and response:
GET /app/feed/current?uid=20145 HTTP/1.1

Host -
Accept-Encoding gzip, deflate

Connection: close -

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily -
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 18:45:52 GMT

Server Apache -

Content-Encoding gzip -
Content-Type text/html;charset=UTF-8
Set-CookiE. JSESSIONID=261EFFBDA8EC3036FBCC22D991AC6835; Path=/app/feed/current?uid=20145
What is the problem?

  • A. The request does NOT include a User-Agent header.
  • B. The HTTP monitor does NOT support monitoring jsp pages.
  • C. The request does NOT include any cookies and the application is expecting a session cookie.
  • D. The request includes an Accept-Encoding so the server is responding with a gzipped result and LTM monitors CANNOT handle gzipped responses.

Answer : C

An LTM Specialist configures an HTTP monitor as follows:
ltm monitor http stats_http_monitor {
defaults-from http
destination *:*
interval 5
recv "Health check: OK"
send "GET /stats/stats.html HTTP/1.1\\r\\nHost:\\r\\nAccept-EncodinG. gzip, deflate\\r\\nConnection: close\\r\\n\\r\\n" time-until-up 0 timeout 16
The monitor is marking all nodes as down. A trace of the HTTP conversation shows the following:

GET /stats/stats.html HTTP/1.1 -

Host: -

Accept-EncodinG. gzip, deflate -

Connection: close -
HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required
DatE. Tue, 23 Oct 2012 19:38:56 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.15 (Unix)
WWW-AuthenticatE. Basic realm="Please enter your credentials"

Content-LengtH. 480 -

Connection: close -
Content-TypE. text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Which action will resolve the problem?

  • A. Add an NTLM profile to the virtual server.
  • B. Add a valid username and password to the monitor.
  • C. Use an HTTPS monitor with a valid certificate instead.
  • D. Add a backslash before the colon in the receive string.
