Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy_balancer back end status check
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2010 11:12:51 GMT

When using mod_proxy_balancer, is it possible to configure the way it checks the status of
the member servers in its cluster?
I have come across a scenario where the back end server is running, and accepts requests but
doesn't send responses. This gives the impression it is up, but in actual fact it's as good
as down. It would be good if we could set a timeout, or call a status script from mod_proxy_balancer,
but I haven't been able to find anything about this in the documentation. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.
