About the SD-WAN Events Page

 

To access this page, click Monitor > Link Switch Events in the Customer Portal.

You can use the SD-WAN Events page to view information about SD-WAN events. An SD-WAN event is triggered when the SLA requirements for a site are not met on its network-designated WAN link and the site switches WAN links to meet the SLA requirements.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

  • View a graphical representation of SD-WAN events in a specified time range (Time Range widget)
