Origin Responsiveness Monitoring
Configure this failure scenario to continually monitor connectivity health to your primary origin and define a retry or recovery method.
If you'd like to include this failure scenario set the Monitor Origin Responsiveness slider to "On" to enable it and access additional configuration options.
|Timeouts||Select the timeout threshold condition to use to trigger
a retry or recovery method, or select "User-Specified" to set your own
timeout (and input a desired time in User Specified
The Aggressive, Moderate, and Conservative conditions use a segment-based logic and default times. They are discussed in greater detail in Timeouts, below.
Note: For best results with the fixed threshold conditions, Enable IP Avoidance should be set to "On" and configured.
|Enable Retry Before Recovery||Set this slider to "On," if
you'd like Akamai to retry after a failure
before trying the recovery method.
Note: If Enable IP Avoidance is set to "Off" in your Tuning Parameters, we recommend that you leave this set to "Off" as well. Without an IP Avoidance configuration, your failover method may not be used if Retry Before Recovery is enabled.
|Enable Recovery Method||Set this slider to "On" to incorporate a recovery method for this failure scenario.|
|Recovery Method Configuration Name||Input the value you applied as the Recovery Configuration
Name for the recovery method you want to use:
Note: If you've deviated from the default method to set up your recovery methods, verify the proper Recovery Configuration Name to use by reviewing the Origin Failure Recovery Methods rule.
When defining Origin Responsiveness Monitoring in your Origin Failure Recovery Policy, you need to establish a Timeout configuration. Three preset values are offered—Aggressive, Moderate, or Conservative—or you can apply a User Specified Timeout in seconds.
This timeout is a threshold that's used to trigger a retry or a recovery action. For example, if the timeout was five seconds, a request to your primary origin that meets or exceeds this time would trigger the retry or recovery action.
The preset thresholds
Each of the preset thresholds has a default time for the trigger, in seconds.
The User Specified threshold
This is relatively self-explanatory. Select this threshold and define the amount of time to trigger the retry or failover, in the User Specified Timeout (seconds) field that's revealed.
