Can you please provide the Splunk search and indexer nodes health check url to use this for DNS / VIP level to check whether the nodes are active or not.

An HTTP poll to port 8089 (or whichever port you have configured) should return valid XML. This is, actually, a FAQ. Checking the presence of port 9997 (default) is a good indicator of a working indexer.

Thanks for the up-vote, but it is better just to mark your question answered so it can be seen at a glance.

Sorry. If not http, https.

If you log into your indexer, you should be able to see which ports with a netstat command.
