Is It Possible Using Oracle Traffic Director to Write a Custom Message in the Health Check Socket Before It is Closed? (Doc ID 1567382.1)

Last updated on JUNE 20, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Traffic Director - Version 11.1.1.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We have an Java sockets based application, the application receives requests (sockets) with a specific expected content, when this application was migrated to Exalogic a cluster configuration using OTD was deployed to create a high available cluster (OTD in front of two vServers running our Java application). When the OTD health check mechanism creates a socket to our application this socket is closed without writing anything, causing the following error in our application.

 

The question is: Is it possible using OTD to write a custom message in the healthcheck socket before the socket closure?
