The `kernel: __ratelimit: x callbacks suppressed` is a kernel log message that indicates that a log message has been repeated. It is similar to the `last message repeated x times` They conserve log space by condensing multiple messages into one line. This message is not a problem on its own. If there are no other messages in the logs which indicate a problem, then there is nothing to worry about.
No data or invalid data received from server.
TCP connection ok, but the SSL_connect failed.
Machine is available but the application is not running (connection refused).
Probably only seen when checking "remote" machines, or if machine has just failed (ARP still valid).
There is no route to the host, machine is probably down, or a network failure.
Connected, but server took too long to send back any data.
This message indicates that the server was unreachable for client connections even though the healthcheck is passing. This can be due to several factors. Most likely the healthcheck is not operating at a high enough level, the healthcheck considers the server up whereas in reality the server is not ready to accept connections. This can also happen if the server has just gone down and the healthcheck has not yet failed.
"Unconnected" timeouts are a result of connection attempts which were not completed to the real server. LoadMaster has determined which real server should take the connection and has initiated a TCP connection to the server, however the server did not respond. This may be due to a failed real server which has not been marked as failed by the healthcheck. It could also be caused by a very slow response time.
"Connected" timeouts indicate that the connection to the real server has been established and that data may have been transferred. The connection was disconnected because the idle timeout has been reached. This type of timeout is normal and is mostly the result of clients simply abandoning the connection.
"Waiting for initial client request" occurs when the client connects but does not send any data. The client in question is x.x.x.x, the VS is y.y.y.y, the third address is the RS. In this case, the RS has not been selected, since there has been no data from the client that can be used to determine which to select.
These messages are generated by the Syslog Daemon every 20 minutes of inactivity within the KEMP LoadMaster to highlight that the logging daemon is still running on the LoadMaster, for example:

To change an existing user's password, follow the steps below:
You can reset the bal account password by accessing the console and logging in with the following details: User: pwreset Password: 1pwreset Note - Resetting the bal user password requires direct console access to the unit. This cannot be done using SSH. (this includes LoadMasters in cloud environments) Once this is done, log in to the console menu using User: bal Password: 1fourall
This error refers to the current license on the unit. You can update the firmware on the LoadMaster if the unit is in support but will need to update the license first If support has been renewed recently, the unit may have the old support date. In this scenario, you must update the license on the unit using the online or offline licensing method. If the LoadMaster has access to the internet:
Outlooks clients are timing out when connecting to their exchange 2010 servers via the Loadmaster, or Outlook Clients are not responding when a CAS server fails. To correct this problem please perform the following.
To perform ICMP ping on a Loadmaster a ping can be used to confirm connectivity to a real server or loadmaster default gateway or real server.
To download log files to the load master and view the files on the load master. Go to System Configuration - Logging Options - Log Files Next go to downloads log files which provide a full copy of all log files. Under this you can view the boot, warning and system message by clicking on the individual buttons.
From the configuration Menu: Access the Command Line 7) Utilities -> 9) Diagnostics -> 9) Diagnostic Shell %tcpdump src x.x.x.x and dst x.x.x.x and port http
To capture all the running processes running on the Loadmaster a PS command can be run. A PS will display the PPID’s of the processes running on the load master. Go to System Configuration – Logging Options – Log Files. Select Debug Options and select Perform a PS and select PS button. A new page will be displayed with the data from the PS.
The error message below is cause by not having enough memory assigned to your Virtual Loadmaster. Access your HyperV or VMWare Virtual machine settings and allocate a minimum 512MB.
You can either use SSH or the Console to access your LoadMaster command line. Tcpdump can be accessed from the configuration Menu via: 7) Utilities -> 9) Diagnostics -> 9) Diagnostic Shell At the % prompt type tcpdump, as so: % tcpdump

Since SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 all send a banner message before the client begins a request, Server Initiating Protocols must be set if the service operates at Layer 7. Please make sure this is set to the proper value.
Not Available Server and Not Available Redirect are mutually exclusive options. Both are ways of handling situations which would otherwise result in a downed virtual service. Not Available Server sends all traffic to that server without checking its health. Not Available Redirect instead replies to incoming requests with an error code and redirect URL or error message.
LoadMaster may experience port exhaustion in cases of high load where the service is non-transparent. In these cases, you enable option to allow for additional IP addresses to be allotted to any specific virtual service that expects heavy traffic. In the WUI:
Please refer to our documentation page to consult the release notes specific to your LoadMaster and version of firmware.
There is a feature on the LM where you can enter in an IP address and it will send ICMP request to that IP address. To access the feature:
