ASA SLA Monitoring Options

Hi,

Does the "Number of packets" option mean that all the packets specified must exceed the threshold, or is it only one that can be missed? The internet connection for the config below is not very reliable and ping responses are regularly dropped. I beleive this could be causing the route to change to the backup connection when not needed.

Thanks

ASA SLA Monitoring Options

Hello Dustin,

No, SLA monitoring will track the 5 packets no just the one dropped, so in order for SLA to happen the 5 packets got to be dropped.

Hello Dustin,

The "number of packets" configuration is the amount of ICMP request packets that are going to go out from the ASA to the target, and these packets are the ones that are going to be inspected or monitored so if they are getting regularly dropped the test is not going to pass and a Failover between the routes will happen.

Please rate helpful posts.

Have a good one

If it is configured for 5 packets, will the route change if only 1 packet is dropped?
