Hierarchy Level


Define global threshold for IP monitoring. This is the number that needs to be met or exceeded by all of the cumulative weights of the monitored IP addresses to trigger a failover.

When a monitored address is marked as unreachable, the weight value associated with that address is deducted from the the redundancy group IP address monitoring global threshold. If the accumulated monitored address weight values surpass the global-threshold value, that is, when the global threshold reaches 0, the global weight is deducted from the redundancy group threshold. Every redundancy group has a default threshold of 255. If the threshold reaches 0, a failover is triggered


number—Value at which the IP monitoring weight is applied against the redundancy group failover threshold.

  • Range: 0 through 255

  • Default: 255
