Health Check

The Health Check page is only available on the Master node. Users can use the HA Health Check to set up a Ping server to ensure the network condition between client devices and FortiSandbox is always up. If not, the Master node will downgrade itself to a Primary Slave node if there is at least one Primary Slave node existing, a failover will occur after the configured period elapses. If no Primary Slave node exists, the Master node will keep its Master role.
