    Hi ASF ,

    I think you might need to consider some questions around the failsafe topic, including what your expected failure scenarios might be. For instance, in a virtual environment I'd say the chances of losing the VLAN near to the interface of the VE are low, but something like a missing gateway or an upstream connection might be a greater risk. You should also only configure VLAN failsafe on the vlans that truly matter.

    The other option, gateway failsafe, can monitor one or more upstream gateways, depending on the architecture.

    HA Group builds on gateway failsafe but can work at the traffic group level, should you have a need for that level of control.
