1. A method for determining responsiveness of a service via a particular protocol, the method comprising:

  • (a) determining, by a device intermediary to a plurality of clients and a plurality of services, response times from each of a plurality of services to respond to requests via a first type of protocol of a plurality of protocols;

    (b) calculating, by the device, an average response time for the first type of protocol from each of the response times of the plurality of services;

    (c) establishing, by the device, a predetermined threshold for which a response time of a service for the first type of protocol may deviate from the average response time; and

    (d) identifying, by the device, a service as available responsive to determining that a deviation of the response time of the service from the average response falls within the predetermined threshold.
