I have a requirement to load balance VSEs using F5. Does anyone has any idea on what are the VSE URLs do I need to configure in F5 for health check ?
FYI :I dont want to configure failover Registry. Only VSEs.
A VSE is not load-balancer aware, and virtual services are not intended to share state in the manner that operation behind a load balancer requires.
For these reasons, we do not support the use of VSEs behind load balancers.
I agree with Dave. Use this approach with an amount of caution and ensure a deep understanding of your infrastructure and what the VSEs and deployed services are intended to provide. As Dave states, we do not support the use of VSEs behind load balancers. There are things to consider if you move forward with this approach.
In the sample graphic below, think of the blue line as a line of demarcation. All development and deployment activities are occurring below the line. Development and internal communications never flow through the F5. The DevTest components are connected to and controlled using their actual IP addresses. Ports and firewalls need to be open to allow the communications flow. From above the line, SUTs are invoking services using the endpoint (virtual IP) exposed by the F5. If for some reason, services need to perform Live Invocation (Red Line out of VSEs), firewalls and ports must be open to allow those communications to occur.
