Cluster Services

You can get detailed information on a specific service, or a list of them all (1).

For each service, the following information is displayed (2):

  • Service name, as used internally by the cluster. Use this name for any communication with our support team.
  • Current status, which can be enabled or disabled.
  • Service being load balanced (i.e. http,snmp, dns, etc).
  • Virtual IP providing the service. This is the IP address that should be used in DNS records.
  • Port of the service (can be all for all the ports).
  • Scheduler being used by the load balancer.
  • Time for the persistent connections.
  • The available (or pending) actions in the server.

There is also information about the availability check (3) being used by the load balancer director to check if the real services are actually working properly.

There is also a list of real services (4) where you can check the status of the servers involved in the service:

  • Server name, including a link to its management page.
  • Status of the service: Active, Inactive, Standby or Disabled.
  • If the service is a fallback member of the cluster.
  • Weight of the server in the service. In case the cluster has more than one active server, this value affects the way the connections are handled (more weight, more connections).
  • IP address in the cluster. This is the IP address the load balancer director is using to access the server.
  • Port used in the service.
  • Connections status, bits in, bits out, as well as packets in/out for the real service.
  • Last update for the real service.
  • The available (or pending) actions in the server.

Finally a realtime chart (5) is displayed to provide a visual representation of the cluster and its current status.
