L6 Presenter


Device1 Active

Device2 Passive

When a failover takes about 7-8 timeouts(45 second) : device1 passive device2 active

When a failover happens again  it takes about 1 timeout(good time):  device1 active  device2 passive

Any ideas ?



L5 Sessionator


Same fail-over condition on both device ?


Yes sure.both same config.

L4 Transporter

A bit of a broad question because of the various factors that may be in play. But typically the passive unit will be available very quickly it's a matter of other factors coming over.

If this is a simple L3 setup no dynamic routing you can tail a log that will show you when the Gratuitous ARP is sent out.

On the passive unit use this command via cli.

pa> tail follow yes dp-log pan_dha.log

Suspend the active-

You should see this log-

Jan 1 00:00:16 Send gratuitous ARP

See if this differs between the two firewalls when taking over. Will be a good starting point.
