This discussion is about monitoring LB VIPs on ADCs/Netscalers, with a user wondering about the proper trigger configuration. They had tested it but got no alert email. It was suggested to use the Netscaler Record Type to get a lot of useful data and also to try manually triggering the alert by unbinding the back end server from the service group to observe the value changes in the console.

Hi Everyone, Just wondering if anyone is monitoring LB VIPS on their ADC/Netscalers? If so, do you mind sharing your trigger configuration? I’m trying to create a trigger to monitor a LB VIP and alert if the VIP goes down and if/when it comes back up. I’ve tried and Advanced Trigger, Record Type is Load Balancer. Here’s a screenshot of my filter to send the alert. Any idea where I went wrong?
How did you test it? Do you see the value in the grid (solve or console) changing?
Have you tried using the Netscaler Record Type instead? a lot of goodies in there that may help.
I try and manually trigger the alert by unbinding the back end server from the service group. The console updates showing VServer Health at 0%, but I don’t get an alert email. Name in the filter is same as the name in the console’s "Name" column.
