Symptoms

HTTP/HTTPS) monitors send unexpected data (crlfcrlf) after completion of TCP and/or SSL handshake.

Impact

A monitor configured with a 'none' send string sends a 4-byte string, \r\n\r\n (crlfcrlf), after completing the handshake. This is ignored by the monitored node, which might cause it to be marked down.

Conditions

HTTP/HTTPS monitor with a send attribute set to 'none'. HTTP/HTTPS monitors with a 'none' send string should complete the TCP handshake(+SSL handshake) and then close the connection without sending any data.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

HTTP/HTTPS monitor no longer transmits any L7 data when send attribute is set to 'none'.
