When a pool member is disabled and subsequently re-enabled, it logs a message saying that the monitor status is down for a very short time (just prior to coming back up). This is because the system is in the state 'forced down' when the pool member is disabled, and when it is re-enabled, it transitions to the state 'down', and then immediately to the state 'up', and each of these transitions is logged.


A potentially confusing log message. No other functional impact.


A pool member is disabled, then re-enabled.



Fix Information

The system no longer logs the transition from 'forced down' to 'down.
