Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 11.2.
Configure the number of client alive messages that can be sent without sshd receiving any messages back from the client. If this threshold is reached while client alive messages are being sent, sshd will disconnect the client, terminating the session. Client alive messages are sent through the encrypted channel. Use in conjunction with client-alive-interval to disconnect unresponsive SSH clients.
