How to check Health status of Hybrid Signaling Connector iApp
- After deploying the Hybrid Signaling Connector iApp, the on-prem BIG-IP will initiate "call-home" health checks to the F5 Silverline Cloud Platform every 60 seconds.
- These Health Check signals are used to determine the health of the connection between Silverline and the on-prem BIG-IPs.
- This status is reported on the Hybrid BIG-IP Management Page, located here: Config -> Hybrid Configuration -> Hybrid BIG-IP Management.
Potential Device Status Levels
|UP / OK||Call-home health checks are being sent and received normally.|
NOT YET APPROVED /
|A BIG-IP has registered to Silverline, but it has not yet been approved. Or, it has been approved and Health Check Signals are not being received by Silverline.|
|HEARTBEAT MISSED / DOWN||4 consecutive Health Checks have not been received successfully pointing to a communication problem between the on-prem BIG-IP and Silverline. If this state is unexpected for a BIG-IP, follow the troubleshooting steps in this KB Article (at the bottom): https://support.f5silverline.com/hc/en-us/articles/218941168|
A SOC Analyst or Portal User has placed the on-prem BIG-IP in a suppressed state.
This is typically done if a particular BIG-IP is sending non-stop alerts to Silverline which are false positives. Devices can be suppressed in advance of maintenance or testing, to prevent alerting the SOC unnecessarily.
