- Click Manage Pools.
- For pools and individual origins, review the values in the Health and Origin Health columns.
For more information on pool and origin health statuses, refer to How a pool becomes unhealthy.
To fetch the latest health status of all pools, use the List Pools command, paying attention to the
healthy value for pools and origins.
For troubleshooting a specific pool’s health, use the Pool Health Details command.
