[lvs-users] How ldirectord polls real servers

as far as you know where can I find a detailed description/documentation
about how ldirectord polls the realservers in order to realize if the node
should be actually removed from the cluster?
For sure, " ldirectord monitors the health of the real servers by
periodically requesting a known URL and checking that the response contains
an expected response. If a real server fails then the server is removed and
will be reactivated once it comes back on line.".
But what if the real servers implement a custom tcp or udp service?
In case of a tcp persistent connection, what if there is no data flow for a
while (shall I rely just on the 'persistent' timeout)?
And what about a cistom udp server?
Is there a way to use tcpdump in order to detect such evidence?
Thanks in advance for your advice,
