16.1.0

Opened: Jul 24, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When the 'Monitor Disabled Objects' option is set to 'no', the monitors assigned to a disabled pool member continue monitoring the associated object.

Impact

Disabled pool members are always monitored regardless of the 'Monitor Disabled Objects' setting. This prevents using 'Monitor Disabled Objects' set to 'no' as a way to reduce monitoring load by only monitoring active objects.

Conditions

When the 'Monitor Disabled Objects' option is set to 'no' and the configuration for a disabled pool member includes a monitor or the pool member inherits a monitor from the pool.

Workaround

Remove the monitor from the disabled pool member.

Fix Information

GSLB no longer monitors disabled pool members when the pool member configuration includes a monitor and the 'Monitor Disabled Objects' option is set to 'no'.
