An important part of the Cloud Services portal is to provide a quick and easy way to see the overall health of the service, and the ability to quickly find problem areas so they can be fixed with minimal downtime. To accomplish this goal, the portal shows a health status for your services. The image below shows the health for both the DNS and the DNS Load Balancer services on the Your F5 Cloud tab in the Cloud Services navigation menu. You can click on the health status to get more details.
The image below shows an example of the DNS Load Balancer Cloud Service dashboard with the health status highlighted. The SERVICE HEALTH shown at the top left gives an account-level health aggregation of all your active load-balancing services, whereas the list of Health statuses on the right shows the health of each individual load-balancing service. This allows you quickly see if you have any service problems, and if so quickly scroll down the list of services to see which ones are having a problem.
The SERVICE HEALTH shown above provide a general sense of the problem based on the state and color shown. The table below shows the different health states along with their color and meaning.
|HEALTHY||All individual load-balancing services are blue/healthy|
|DEGRADED||One or more services are yellow/degraded, and no services are red and not in service|
|NOT IN SERVICE||One or more services are red/not in service|
|N/A||All services are currently inactive|
The service-level Health column shows the health of each service. The meaning of each color/state is shown in the table below.
|This service is up and running in all deployed regions|
|This service is up and running but requires attention possibly due to configuration problems, or the service is down in at least one of deployed regions, but not all of them|
|This service is down due to a critical error or down in all deployed regions|
|This service is currently inactive|
