Hierarchy Level


Define global weight for IP monitoring. This is the weight that is subtracted from the redundancy group weight for all of the hosts being monitored. This number specifies the relative importance of IP address monitored objects in the operation of the redundancy group.

Every monitored IP address is assigned a weight. If the monitored address becomes unreachable, the weight of the object is deducted from the global-threshold of IP monitoring objects in its redundancy group. When the global-threshold reaches 0, the global-weight is deducted from the redundancy group. Every redundancy group has a default threshold of 255. If the threshold reaches 0, a failover is triggered. Failover is triggered even if the redundancy group is in manual failover mode and preemption is not enabled.


number —Combined weight assigned to all monitored IP addresses. A higher weight value indicates a greater importance.

  • Range: 0 through 255

  • Default: 255
