Hi @KGDrake ,

In my humble opinion in your case there will be no benefit of enabling tunnel monitor.

Probably the only benefit would be to receive an alarm for issues with VPN tunnel in the rare edge cases where tunnel is UP (there is phase1 and 2, but for some reason traffic is not passing through.

If your third party monitoring is only monitoring the state of the IPsec phases, they could report tunnel up, but traffic to actually failing to pass the tunnel. With tunnel monitor enabled with wait recovery, you will have system log generated when the path is down or up.


Other than that, I also don't cannot think of any benefit of enabling it.
