Bypass Card question

Hi all,

I found that I had enabled bypass feature in appliance. Bypass status appear bypass on. However, I can see it hit some implied rules in smartview tracker. Why? Is it normal? Who can give me correct answer?

Re: Bypass Card question

Considering it's supposed to be a hardware bypass, I'm guessing the "bypass status" is erroneous in this case.

According to the Bypass Card FAQ: Bypass (Fail-Open) network interface card FAQ 

If bypass is initiated, the flipping is immediate as this is hardware bypass. Yet, the thresholds for each of the following states should be considered:

  • There is a power loss - Immediate
  • The appliance is rebooting - Immediate
  • Unable to allocate memory in kernel - Immediate
  • High CPU and packet drops - Threshold is set to 5,000 drops and 85% CPU usage within 20 seconds.
  • DLP process is crash - 20 crashes within 300 seconds
  • FWD process is not responding - Threshold is set to 75 seconds

And further, the unit will not stay in bypass mode unless one of the above conditions is satisfied.
