I want to create an iRule or a Monitor (whatever is simplest) to test login of a webpage and then look for an element on the page after login. I have very limited experience with either iRules or Monitors. My monitor experience is limited to the gui. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I've read a lot today on DevCentral but nothing I've found has been much help. Thanks in advance for any guidance!
It seems like you are looking for an external monitor. An external monitor allows for a custom script to be written and run for health check purposes. If you could script a curl command that fits your requirement, then you could use that to check your pool member status.
If you have any more questions, I am sure I can help
