Hierarchy Level


When the MultiServices PIC configured for a service set is either administratively taken offline or undergoes a failure, all the traffic entering the configured interface with an IDP service set would be dropped without notification. To avoid this traffic loss, include the bypass-traffic-on-pic-failure statement. When this statement is configured, the affected packets are forwarded in the event of a MultiServices PIC failure or offlining, as though interface-style services were not configured.

This issue applies only to Junos Application Aware (previously known as Dynamic Application Awareness) configurations with IDP service sets.
