Health Check

HA-Cluster > Health Check is only available on the primary node. You can use the Health Check to set up a ping server to ensure the network condition between client devices and FortiSandbox is always up. If not, the primary node downgrades itself to a secondary node if there is at least one secondary node, a failover occurs after the configured period elapses. If no secondary node exists, the primary node keeps its primary role.

The following options are available:

Create New
