Assume you want to check the OHS or httpd servers one LTM VIP is routing traffic to. Then here's the steps:

  1. get the ip address of VIP;
  2. log on LTM's BUI. Local traffic-> virtual servers -> virtual server list, search ip
  3. click "edit" below column "resource"
  4. note down default pool
  5. search pool name in local traffic -> virtual servers -> pools -> pool list
  6. click the number below column members. Then you'll find the OHS servers and ports the VIP will route traffic to.


  • To check connections including one specific IP, run below
    • show /sys connection |grep -w <IP>
