Re: Ipsla for timeout


Do you want continues receiving trap until correct action is performed, or do you want receive trap every time when the state changes from reachable to unreachable?

Ipsla for timeout

Hi Lei,

I would want to recieve traps every time  packet drops are observed while pinging the nexthop(Monitorring the performance of link).
