F5 HTTP Monitor Troubleshooting

Fun F5 Troubleshooting 

Test your HTTP keep alive from the F5 CLI:
Using curl:
     curl -vvv -H "Host: domain.com" -H "Connection: Close" -H "User-Agent:" -H "Accept:" serverip:port/uripath.html

Using Telnet:
telnet serverip port
Then copy the first half of your keep alive
     GET /uripath.html

From the above listed commands you should see exactly what the F5 is receiving  when it sends a keep alive.  From the returned http request you can determine the best data to use for a receive string.
