Extend Interface Failure Detection to Aggregate Interfaces

This feature extends fail-detect to aggregate and redundant interfaces. When an aggregate or a redundant interface goes down, the corresponding fail-alert-interface will be changed to down. When the aggregate or redundant interface comes up, the corresponding fail-alert-interface will be changed to up.

Fail-detect on aggregate and redundant interfaces can be configured using the CLI.

To configure an aggregate interface so that port3 goes down with it:

config system interface

edit "agg1"

set vdom "root"

set fail-detect enable

set fail-alert-method link-down

set fail-alert-interfaces "port3"

set type aggregate

set member "port1" "port2"

next

end

To configure a redundant interface so that port4 goes down with it:

config system interface

edit "red1"

set vdom "root"

set fail-detect enable

set fail-alert-method link-down

set fail-alert-interfaces "port4"

set type redundant

set member "port1" "port2"

next

end
