We have an F5 BIG-IP load-balancer we use in front of a web application hosted by several identical servers. The application listens on port 443 for SSL/TLS requests and port 80 for http requests. However, the only thing that happens to an http port 80 request is that it gets a 302 redirect response.
I am trying to create a monitor for the F5 pool used for port 80 that detects that the service is working properly, i.e., that http requests get redirected to https. However, I cannot find a monitor to do this.
Is there such a monitor?
