Opened: Mar 30, 2018

Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

It is not possible to query a monitor status through iControl REST if the monitor is in a non-default partition. If the monitor is in the /Common partition it is possible to obtain the monitor status with following command: [root@TEST_UNIT:Active:Disconnected] config # restcurl -u admin:admin /mgmt/tm/ltm/monitor/http/~Common~myHttpMonitor/stats { "kind": "tm:ltm:monitor:http:httpstats", "generation": 0, "selfLink": "https://<localhost path>", "apiRawValues": { "apiAnonymous": "------------------------------------\n LTM::Monitor /Common/myHttpMonitor \n------------------------------------\n Destination: <IP address:port>\n State time: down for 113hrs:38mins:54sec\n | Last error: No successful responses received before deadline. @2023.09.21 22:56:54\n\n" } } If the monitor is in a non-default partition, the iContol REST interface returns a "404 - Object not found" error: [root@TEST_UNIT:Active:Disconnected] config # restcurl -u admin:admin /mgmt/tm/ltm/monitor/http/~p1~myHttpMonitor/stats { "code": 404, "message": "Object not found - /p1/myHttpMonitor", "errorStack": [], "apiError": 1 }
