I have two ASA 5520's setup in an active standby configuration. Each pix is configured with a inside and outside interface. I am also using the other two interfaces for the failover, and stateful pair. These firewall's are directly plugged into each other (no switches in between, I don't have any cross over cables so right now they are connected using straight through cables)
I am sourcing a ping from my laptop to a website, and then I force a fail on the active firewall by unplugging one of the monitored interfaces. The failover works but it seems to take too long to failover. I timed it and found that I am able to recover my ping close to a minute later after the failover has happened. Is this normal behavior or is there something wrong in my setup.
