Is there a way we can put an alert of secondary uplink going down. I see an alert of MX primary uplink but not of the secondary uplink. Can be achieved with an API if not the alert ?
I have put in a feature request for exactly that item. As far as I know there is no way to know when the secondary WAN link goes down.
There other issue is the ability to know when the Secondary Link is acting as the active link.
We use cellular extenders on the MX65W to plug into the Secondary WAN port, our odd work around has been to monitor the traffic on WAN2 via SNMP and if it exceeds a threshold we have a notification sent from our SNMP Collector. I know a long way to get to a solution but it seems to work.
@pkinnison on our MXs we get an alert when it is using WAN 2 as it's uplink due to it thinking WAN 1 is down. It is a standard alert in the 15.16 firmware.
@trendkill I also think the primary uplink alert only applies to the active device, I did have WAN 1 fail on the failover device of an HA pair and didn't get an alert...
