    Failover Operation In Conjunction with Fail-Open Kits

    philipshauntaylor

      We have a pair of M-4050 sensors in a failover configuration deployed in a two-path network with asymmetric routing.

       

      We want to introduce fail-open kits onto both sensors.

       

      My question is:

       

      1. If Sensor 1 fails, will its fail-open kit detect this and switch to bypass mode, with the result that traffic path 1 will continue to flow but will no longer be monitored?
      2. Or will fail-open kit 1 NOT open path 1 and Sensor 2 will take over monitoring both traffic paths? In this scenario I assume that fail-open kit(s) only open the path(s) if BOTH sensors fail?

       

      Thanks for any feedback.
