S Commands

Service Heartbeat


Netvisor generates a packet from the CPU to send to the receive port of an Inline Service and the Netvisor vFlow configured for snooping is not port-specific, as Netvisor accepts the response from either the receive port or the transmit port. You configure the heartbeat as an additional parameter for a specific Inline Service.

Syntax   service-heartbeat-create


name name-string

Specify the name for the Heartbeat Service.

interval duration: #d#h#m#s

Specify the interval between heartbeat packets.

retry retry-number

Specify the number of times to retry sending a packet.

vlan vlan-id5

Specify a VLAN ID.

src-mac mac-address

Specify the source port MAC address.

dst-mac mac-address 

Specify the destination MAC address.

type normal|pass-through

Specify the type of heartbeat response as normal or passthrough. A normal response indicates that the Inline Service sends the response. A passthrough response indicates that Netvisor sends the response and returns it to the Inline Service.

Specify the payload for the heartbeat packet.
