How to view connection status on the 3600 appliances

How do I see the status of the internet link?
Because in the spark line the visualization is very intuitive, but in the 3000 appliances I don't know where to visualize this information.

See images below

 

I want to see how long the internet link has been working in appliances 3600

I believe cpview will show this.

Linux does not directly track the uptime of a particular interface, so you could try searching the various /var/log/messages* files trying to see when that interface was first brought up (and when it may have gone through a transition which will also increment the "carrier" counter shown by ifconfig -a).  But for the external interface in particular you could look at the age in seconds of the default route leading out that interface like this, because if the external interface goes down the route will be removed and have its age counter reset:

Following your example, how would you calculate time

Would it be this?

10613/360=29.48 hours, days??

475502 seconds is 7,925 minutes (/60)  which is 132 hours (/60) which is ~5.5 days (/24).

How can you monitor if a particular primary WAN physical interface is up and a reachable gateway but there's no connection to a public DNS to confirm there's objectivity to internet on that WAN, there could be a scenario that you can reach your provider but actually they have a outage affecting your service?

If you have a cluster utilizing ClusterXL you can monitor upsteam IP addresses to detect an outage at your ISP, check out the clusterxl_monitor_ips feature here: sk35780 (How to configure $FWDIR/bin/clusterXL_monitor_ips script to run automatically on Gaia / Sec...

The ISP Redundancy feature can also monitor upstream ISP addresses to detect failure, but you are required to have at least two ISPs defined in order to use this feature.  Although I suppose you could add a "fake" secondary ISP that will always be down and then still be able to monitor and receive alerts when the Primary ISP goes down.  Not really how the ISP Redundancy feature was designed to be used, but would probably work.

Thank you all for your help.
So, through the GAIA graphical interface, there is no way to visualize it, as there is in the SMB version?

Doesn't look possible to me in the Gaia web interface, especially since the underlying Linux OS doesn't have that info either.
