Hi Everyone i have one question is there traffic draining concept in f5 ?
i.e assume i have 2 active servers connected to the f5 and i want one of the servers to be down for maintenance purpose so without affecting the connection (currently started requests will be finished but it doesn't accept any more requests).
You can try that way:
Local Traffic ›› Pools : Pool List ›› "pool_with_server_to_be_stopped">>
tab "Members" >> choose member/server that will go to maintenance.
Next you can set the state you want.
Just for clarification,
You can set the state to be:
Enabled (All traffic allowed)
Disabled (Only persistent or active connections allowed)
Forced Offline (Only active connections allowed)
After that press "Update" of course...
