Inline Service


The Inline Service feature manages service chains for Layer 1 Virtual Wire switches. The term, Inline Services, refers to services attached to a Layer 1 Virtual Wire switch such as Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS) Prevention.

When an Inline Service fails, a policy determines if traffic is allowed to bypass the Inline Services or if the traffic is blocked until the Inline Services recovers.

This command creates an Inline Service configuration.
