configure sharing health-check member-port port add tcp-tracking IP Address {tcp-port TC Port frequency sec misses count}


Configures monitoring for each member port of a health check LAG (Link Aggregation Group).

Syntax Description


Specifies the member port.

IP Address

Specifies the IP address to monitor.

Specifies the frequency in seconds at which tracking takes place. The default is 10 seconds.


Specifies the number of misses before a connection loss is reported. The default is 3 misses.



Usage Guidelines

To configure a health check LAG, you first create a health check type of LAG using the enable sharing grouping command. Then use this command to configure the monitoring for each member port. You can configure each member port to track a particular IP address, but only one IP address per member port.

To display the monitoring configuration for a health check LAG, use the show sharing health-check command.

To display the link aggregation configured on a switch, use the show ports sharing command.


The following commands configure four different member ports:

# configure sharing health-check member-port 10 add track-tcp tcp-port 23
# configure sharing health-check member-port 11 add track-tcp tcp-port 23
# configure sharing health-check member-port 12 add track-tcp
# configure sharing health-check member-port 13 add track-tcp

When the TCP port, seconds, or counts are not specified, they default to the values described in the Syntax Description.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.3.
