i've been working on a few Meraki devices and I've seen some failover events come through. I would like to understand the logs better.
Security appliance Client Event type Details
|Sep 29 15:31:01||MX001|| ||VRRP transition||if_up: 0, old_if_up: 1, mode: detect |
|Sep 29 15:26:05||MX001|| ||VRRP transition||if_up: 1, old_if_up: 0, mode: detect |
My Objective: Identify when the primary failed and switched to being a Backup.
Could someone help me understand the status codes in the Details section. I have read through the Routed HA Failover Behavior. But I do not understand the Elector state .
Is it saying Elector State- Master = Device is currently Master
and Elector State - Backup = Device lost connectivity and is now Backup ( Spare becomes Master)?
Could someone please clarify the same for me. Would highly appreciate it!
