Configuring Dynamic Mesh Tunnels Threshold for Tenants

CSO dynamically creates or deletes a mesh tunnel (without passing through a enterprise hub or provider hub) between two spoke sites , if:

For more information on dynamic mesh tunnels, see Dynamic Mesh Tunnels Overview.

Note Changes to the dynamic VPN threshold settings are not applied to already-created tenants. Changes are applicable only to tenants that created after the settings have been modified.

Procedure

To modify threshold values at the global-level (for all tenants):

  1. Select Administration > Dynamic Mesh.

    The Dynamic Mesh page appears.

  2. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines in Table 26.

    Note  Fields marked with * are mandatory.

  3. Click Save to save the changes. A confirmation message appears indicating that the threshold values are saved.

    The threshold values that you specify here are applicable for all tenants that you add after modifying the threshold value.

    You can also modify the threshold values while adding a tenant. The threshold value that you specify on the Add Tenant page overrides the threshold value that you specified on the Dynamic Mesh page of Administration Portal.

Description

Threshold for Creating a Tunnel

Sessions Closed

Specify the number of sessions closed (for a duration of 2 minutes) between two spoke sites.

If the number of sessions closed (for a duration of 2 minutes) is greater than or equal to the value that you specified, a dynamic mesh tunnel is created between two spoke sites.

The default threshold value (the number of sessions closed for 2 minutes) is 5.

For example, if you specify the number of sessions closed as 10, dynamic mesh tunnels are created if the number of sessions closed between two spoke sites in 2 minutes is greater than or equal to 10.

Threshold for Deleting a Tunnel

Sessions Closed

Specify the number of sessions closed (for a duration of 15 minutes) between two spoke sites.

If the number of sessions closed (for a duration of 15 minutes) is lesser than or equal to the value that you specified, a dynamic mesh tunnel is deleted between two spoke sites.

The default threshold value (the number of sessions for 15 minutes) is 2.

For example, if you specify the number of sessions closed as 20, dynamic mesh tunnels are deleted if the number of sessions closed is lesser than or equal to 20.
