Subject [users@httpd] Configure Apache to propagate servlet down condition back to load balancer
Date Thu, 01 May 2008 19:13:59 GMT
I have the following configuration:

    BIG-IP   ->  Apache HTTPD  ->  Servlet Container
     Load    ->  Apache HTTPD  ->  Servlet Container
   Balancer  ->  Apache HTTPD  ->  Servlet Container

The Apache HTTPD instance serves up static content and translates HTTPS 
requests into HTTP. Dynamic content is proxied to a Servlet Container 
running an application.

My problem is that when one of the servlet containers seizes up, the 
BIG-IP box doesn't take the Apache instance out of circulation. Instead, 
users are continually connected to non-responsive servlets.

Is there any way to configure Apache so that it is identifies itself as 
unavailable to the BIG-IP box if it finds that all proxy requests are 

Thanks for any help.
