Active healthchecks are disabled by default and can be enabled for a server pool by binding a health monitor to the Group through the PolicyLbRule object. This represents active health monitoring over ICMP. Active healthchecks are initiated periodically, at a configurable interval, to each member of the Group. Only if a healthcheck fails consecutively for a specified number of times (fall_count) to a member will the member status be marked DOWN. Once a member is DOWN, a specified number of consecutive successful healt hchecks (rise_count) will bring the member back to UP state. After a healthcheck is initiated, if it does not complete within a certain period, then also the healthcheck is considered to be unsuccessful. Completing a healthcheck within timeout means establishing a connection (TCP or SSL), if applicable, sending the request and receiving the response, all within the configured timeout.

The server will populate this field when returing the resource. Ignored on PUT and POST.
Protection status is one of the following: PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is not allowed to modify it. NOT_PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is allowed to modify it REQUIRE_OVERRIDE - the client who retrieved the entity is a super user and can modify it, but only when providing the request header X-Allow-Overwrite=true. UNKNOWN - the _protection field could not be determined for this entity.
The _revision property describes the current revision of the resource. To prevent clients from overwriting each other’s changes, PUT operations must include the current _revision of the resource, which clients should obtain by issuing a GET operation. If the _revision provided in a PUT request is missing or stale, the operation will be rejected.

Description of this resource
Defaults to ID if not set
Only if a healthcheck fails consecutively for a specified number of times, given with fall_count, to a member will the member status be marked DOWN.
Unique identifier of this resource
Active healthchecks are initiated periodically, at a configurable interval (in seconds), to each member of the Group.
Intent objects are not directly deleted from the system when a delete is invoked on them. They are marked for deletion and only when all the realized entities for that intent object gets deleted, the intent object is deleted. Objects that are marked for deletion are not returned in GET call. One can use the search API to get these objects.
Typically, monitors perform healthchecks to Group members using the member IP address and pool_port. However, in some cases, customers prefer to run healthchecks against a different port than the pool member port which handles actual application traffic. In such cases, the port to run healthchecks against can be specified in the monitor_port value.

Timeout specified in seconds. After a healthcheck is initiated, if it does not complete within a certain period, then also the healthcheck is considered to be unsuccessful. Completing a healthcheck within timeout means establishing a connection (TCP or SSL), if applicable, sending the request and receiving the response, all within the configured timeout.
