I had a strange situation tonight. I got an alarm of VPN connection restored on one of my IXrouter’s.
Everything would have been fine if it wasn’t for the fact that I didn’t get the lost connection alert earlier.
my current alarm settins:
Alarm name: VPN connection lost
“A notification will be sent when the connection is Lost for 15 minutes”
Alarm name: VPN connection restored
“A notification will be sent when the connection is Restored for 15 minutes”
I suppose the connection loss lasted less than 15 minutes, which is why I didn’t get the connection loss notification.
And here comes the question. If I haven’t lost my connection for 15 minutes, why should I receive a notification that my connection has been restored?
In my opinion, the restored connection notification should be activated after two conditions are met:
- VPN lost connection lost alarm was activated
- connection is Restored for XX minutes
In my opinion there is no point in getting an alarm about reconnection, since the connection has been disconnected for a shorter time than I have set in the alarm settings.
