Returns various status entries for this service as an array of SoftLayer_Container_Network_LoadBalancer_StatusEntry objects


Returns an array of SoftLayer_Container_Network_LoadBalancer_StatusEntry objects. A SoftLayer_Container_Network_LoadBalancer_StatusEntry object has two variables, “Label” and “Value”

Calling this function executes a command on the physical load balancer itself, and therefore should be called infrequently. For a general idea of the load balancer service, use the “peakConnections” variable on the Type

Possible values for “Label” are:

  • IP Address
  • Port
  • Server Status
  • Load Status
  • Current Connections
  • Total Hits

Not all labels are guaranteed to be returned.
