Keep Alive monitoring

by Nave



I would like to see if we can have a monitor added. Here's my scenario and the need. 


We have customers with multiple VPC VPN Tunnels. AWS shuts down a tunnel if it detects 10 or more seconds of inactivity. The solution is to set a keep alive or a ping that will ping the tunnel IP every 5 seconds. Currently the ping monitor limits the ping interval to 1 min. I would like to see if it can be changed to 5 seconds.

Re: Keep Alive monitoring

Dear Nave.

  Thanks for giving the details of your requirement. Its an interesting one. I understand you want to keep the tunnel alive by pinging the tunnel IP so that it feels that some traffic is constantly coming in and thus keeping it alive. I would assume its not necessary that you need this from different locations (Correct me if I'm wrong).

We don't support this at the moment. However, let me get back after some discussion internally.
