1 milisecond timeout for ASA5550 failover

I get a 1 milisecond time out when a failover occurs. I feel this will affect connectivity for users. Should i be concerned

I have configured the following:

interface GigabitEthernet1/3

description LAN/STATE Failover Interface

speed 1000

duplex full

failover

failover lan unit Primary

failover lan interface Fail GigabitEthernet1/3

failover replication http

failover link Fail GigabitEthernet1/3

failover interface ip Fail 221.0.0.1 255.255.255.252 standby 221.0.0.2

failover

failover lan unit secondary

failover lan interface Fail GigabitEthernet1/3

failover replication http

failover link Fail GigabitEthernet1/3

failover interface ip Fail 221.0.0.1 255.255.255.252 standby 221.0.0.2

I dont have this problem when using Pix 525

Re: 1 milisecond timeout for ASA5550 failover

Hi,

1 millisecond failover is more than you can hope on a network environment.

However, from your config i can see the stateful interface and the failover interface are identical.

This is something that Cisco advises against as during heavy traffic the stateful traffic information exchange might delay the failover messages, especially when using http replication. You should use different interfaces for failover and stateful traffic.
