Virtual paths

In this section, you can verify the Static Virtual Paths and enable the Dynamic Virtual Paths.

Static virtual paths

You can verify the static virtual paths created during site creation. These settings are inherited from the global wan link auto-path settings. You can override these configurations and remove the member path that is not required. Filter the virtual paths based on the site and the applied QoS profile.

You can edit the following member path parameters:

  • UDP Port: The port used for LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN packet transfer.

  • Alternate Port: The alternate UDP Port to be used when UDP port switching is enabled.

  • Interval: The interval, in minutes, that the WAN Link will alternate its UDP Port.

  • IP DSCP Tagging: A tag for the external IP header of the Virtual Path Control Protocol (VPCP) frame.

  • Loss Sensitive: A Path may be marked as BAD due to loss and will incur a latency penalty in Path scoring.

  • Percent Loss: If packet loss exceeds the set percentage over the configured time, the GOOD Path state will change to BAD.

  • Over Time: If packet loss exceeds the set percentage over this configured time, the Path state is marked as BAD.

  • Silence Period: The Path state transitions from GOOD to BAD when no packets are received within the specified amount of time.

  • Path Probation Period: The period to wait before changing the Path state from BAD to GOOD.

  • Instability Sensitive: Latency penalties due to BAD state and other spikes in latency are considered.

  • Tracking IP Address: A virtual IP address on the WAN Link that can be pinged to determine the state of the WAN Link.

  • Reverse Tracking IP Address: A virtual IP address on the reverse Path that can be pinged to determine the state of the reverse Path.

Dynamic virtual paths

You can select and enable the dynamic virtual paths and define the maximum number of dynamic virtual paths to be used for the site. The QoS profile to be used, dynamic virtual path creation and removal criteria are defined globally. For more information, see Global Settings.
