WCF NET.TCP

Hi,

I am new here in F5 forum, if this is not the right place for this post, my apologizes.

I would like to know how to configure F5 BIG-IP LTM to handle requests of WCF NET.TCP.

NET.TCP uses TCP socket and its content is binary, so what is the better solution for its monitoring (health check)?

It is not HTTP, so how to configure it?

Regards

Hi, We have few WCF service hosted - and for now we are using a normal TCP monitor to at least see if the service is listening....

You also have the option of using "tcp_half_open". It will not do a full handshake so this will keep your logs cleaner. TCP - Syn | Syn, Ack | Ack | TCP-Half-Open - Syn | Syn, Ack Both will work, just a different approach.

At a previous company, I had the developers create a custom response to my custom tcp healthcheck so we could verify the service, not just the port availability, and so they could prevent that request from filling up the logs.
