monitor ASA Link / State Interface

Is it recommended to monitor the link and state failover interfaces in the case they are independent physical links.

Re: monitor ASA Link / State Interface

The security appliance sends hello packets over the failover interface to monitor unit health. If the standby unit does not receive a hello packet from the active unit for two consecutive polling periods, it sends additional testing packets through the remaining device interfaces. If a hello packet or a response to the interface test packets is not received within the specified hold time, the standby unit becomes active.
