Q&A: Can Silverline proxies be disabled so no traffic is processed?

 

Question

Can Silverline proxies be disabled so no traffic is processed?

  • Can traffic be prevented from being processed in a Silverline proxy, but without losing the frontend IP address assigned?
  • Is it possible to disable a proxy so it no longer processes traffic, but without removing its configuration from the Portal?
     

Environment

  • Silverline DDoS Proxy
  • Silverline WAF
  • Proxy/Proxies

 

Answer

Yes, a Silverline proxy can be disabled via the Portal so it no longer processes traffic. 

  • The benefit of disabling a proxy is that no configuration is lost
    • Frontend IP address remains the same
    • The Proxy configuration remains intact, including:
      • Attached iRules
      • Attached SSL frontend/backend profiles
      • Threat Intelligence profiles
      • Monitor configuration
  • The proxy can be disabled or re-enabled at any time from the Portal 

Note: You may still see some traffic on server coming from Silverline IPs even with disabled proxy.

Our monitoring service will still be sending health check probes to your service.
