comment How to find out whether Linode NodeBalancer takes nodes out of rotation
Apparantly this is built on the API they launched last january - the documentation is here: linode.com/api and it has wrappers in most major languages already...

netstat -tap|grep -v LISTEN|grep -c apache gives me a result of either 0 or 2, although the node is up all the time?

comment How to find out whether Linode NodeBalancer takes nodes out of rotation
wow - the 2nd part of your remark makes complete sense! The first part is a bit tricky as requests from the same origin get routed to the same node and because it would be elaborate, but the 2nd part is indeed very logical. what would be easiest tool / check I can do to see if traffic from the NodeBalancer comes in?

:) for the rest Linode is awesome so far... Thanks for thinking with me though! Much appreciated!

not without a huge effort and it being an error-prone solution - it's behind a login and a few clicks

No, the Node's being taken out of rotation - but I would like to find out on the Node itself (ideally), but any other place where I could trigger a reboot of the node is also fine. Linode's only comments are that the NodeBalancer does not have an API and that I should just check sanity on the Nodes. However, all the checks in the world are not going to help me, unless I do exactly what the NodeBalancer does and at the same time. But of course they don't disclose what exactly they do.

comment How to find out whether Linode NodeBalancer takes nodes out of rotation
i could and i have several other VPSs running as well as other hosting, from where I could ping, but that's not really what i'm after. I'd be pinging the external IP and not the connectivity of the NodeBalancer to the node. And the external IP doesn't necessarily have to do anything, because the nodes are operating over the internal Linode network. But most importantly - I'd like to be able to reboot the Node when this happens, so ideally I'd check from the Node itself somehow?

I did talk to Linode and they didn't offer an API to the NodeBalancer, but of course my dashboard shows the status. They had no solution readily available, but I was hoping that someone figured something smart out themselves - maybe by doing something from the Linode to the NodeBalancer.
