Hello @PavelK , yes it was useful. we also need to understand to enable tunnel monitoring what destination IP that can be use in tunnel monitor to monitor phase1 status.

While enabling tunnel monitor it is giving an error that "enabled tunnel monitoring while binding to tunnel interface tunnel.5 which has no IPV4 address assigned to it yet"

we are using policy based IPsec tunnel hence no IPv4 has assigned on tunnel interface.
