Symptoms

The description of the 'mode' parameter shown by tmsh help for the ltm sasp monitor indicates that the default value for the 'mode' parameter is 'pull' (where the load balancer sends Get Weight Requests to the GWM). As of BIG-IP v13.0.0 and v12.1.2-hf1, the default value for the 'mode' parameter is actually 'push' (where the load balancer receives Send Weights from the GWM). This is a change from prior versions of BIG-IP, where the default value for the 'mode' parameter was 'pull'.

Impact

Incorrect information about the default value for the 'mode' parameter for the ltm sasp monitor.

Conditions

The incorrect description appears when issuing the 'tmsh help ltm monitor sasp' command on BIG-IP v13.0.0, v12.1.2-hf1, and later.

Workaround

The default value for the 'mode' parameter is actually 'push' (where the load balancer receives Send Weights from the GWM).

Fix Information

The 'tmsh help ltm monitor sasp' command now lists the correct default value for the 'mode' parameter.
