Lbaas ,if you use the default driver which is HAProxy, has a built in health monitor. For each lb that you deploy there is an instance of HA Proxy running on the LBaaS agent.

A simple HAproxy config for ping heath check:

backend redis
   option tcp-check
   tcp-check send PING\r\n

But you dont have to worry about it since its implemented automatically when you choose ping as the health check.

There are four types of health monitors avaialable. 1.ICMP 2.HTTP 3.HTTPS 4.TCP

If you want to create a health monitor which will send imcp(ping) packets to the pool members.Then in that case you have to create a health monitor of ICMP type and associate it the the respective pool. ICMP protocol is responsible for pinging the pool member.

health monitor will send the icmp packets to the pool members,from which of the mebers it is not getting reply after a define parameters like delay and time out .then in that caase it will make that member as inactive.
