TCP traffic from a FTP monitor intermittently picks the wrong source address for the egress interface if the pool member being monitored is located on a network served by ECMP routes. This causes FTP monitor to report false failures.
FTP monitors may intermittently report available pool member(s) as not available in a false failure.
FTP monitor is configured to monitor pool members that are accessible through ECMP routes from the BIG-IP.
Allow asymmetric routing by disabling VLAN keyed connections - 'tmsh modify sys db connection.vlankeyed value Disable'
Monitors now send traffic using the correct source address for the egress interface and do not falsely mark available pool members as down.
