Probing interfaces

Probing interfaces

Server probes can be used on interfaces. In order for this to occur, the probe response mode must first be configured, then the probe response must be allowed administrative access on the interface. The probe response mode can be:

none                    Disable probe.

http-probe             HTTP probe.

twamp                   Two way active measurement protocol. Both steps must be done through the CLI.

Configuring the probe

config system probe-response set mode http-probe



Allowing the probe response to have administrative access to the interface

config system interface edit <port>

set allowaccess probe-response end
