Show how long the VPN site-to-site tunnel is up

L1 Bithead

Hi everybody,


Is there any CLI command or log that show the time of the tunel VPN (phase 1, phase 2 or both of them) is up?


The commands:

show vpn ike-sa gateway <gateway name>

show vpn ipsec-sa tunnel <tunnel name>


It shows the lifetime since the last key was negotiated, but it doesn't show the total lifetime of activity of VPN tunnel.

Hi Mate, 


If ye have monitoring set up, the system log has tunnel up / tunnel down. Article below shows how to get details using cli

also has cool way to summarize it to clearly see how log a tunnel is up or down 🙂
