[lvs-users] R: How ldirectord polls real servers

In case of tcp protocol, in order to check the connection of a service of
mine running on realserevrs ("service=none") I already set " connect" as a
checktype; so I assume this setting is the best choice even if such service
should be configured for udp communication.
Should such service be stopped for some reason, my hope is its node should
be removed from the ldirector's realservers list
Thank you all for your time

Ldirectord has various different health checking methods.
For a simple TCP based service you could use the 'connect' check i.e.
Can I do a TCP open on that port?
For UDP you would probably just use a ping check as it is connectionless.
The various methods are pretty well documented in the man page.
