Bond/LACP interface down for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Indeni will alert if a bond interface is down.

Remediation Steps

Review the cause for the interfaces being down.Use the "cphaconf show_bond" command to get additional information.

How does this work?

Use the built-in "cphaconf show_bond" command to retreive the detailed bond state.

Why is this important?

An interface in a bond could be down, and the device would still deem the link as up. This is because the default setting is often to consider one link failure as non-critical if there is another link in the bond. This does however mean a loss of redundancy and capacity which might not be noticed.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
