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.
