Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.2.


Configure the number of concurrent sessions for each group.

Caches are organized in groups. The Junos OS implementation supports up to 63 sessions per group and both IPv4 and IPv6 address families.

If the number of sessions in a group exceeds the max-sessions value, the connections are established in order by preference value. A numerically higher preference results in a higher probability for session establishment. The order of session establishment is random among sessions with equal preferences.


group-name—Name of the validation group.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
