Network > Network Profiles > Monitor
A monitor profile is used to monitor IPSec tunnels and to monitor a next-hop device for policy-based forwarding (PBF) rules. In both cases, the monitor profile is used to specify an action to take when a resource (IPSec tunnel or next-hop device) becomes unavailable. Monitor profiles are optional, but can be very useful for maintaining connectivity between sites and to ensure that PBF rules are maintained. The following settings are used to configure a monitor profile.
