The Path Check profile specifies the conditions that constitute a connectivity failure, and in the event of such a failure, the conditions that constitute a connectivity recovery. See Path Check Support using SIP OPTIONS Ping for details.

After updating a Path Check Profile, you must disable and re-enable the profile for the change to take effect.

Parameter

Description

Name

Specifies the name of the Path Check Profile. This is a mandatory field.

Failure Response Codes

Use this parameter to define one or more response codes to treat as failure responses. The options include one or more of the following values, separating each entry with a space:
 400-699 - list codes individually

  • all – include all response codes from 400-699
  • all4xx – include all 4xx response codes
  • all5xx – include all 5xx response codes
  • all6xx – include all 6xx response codes

 When you use more than one value, enclose the values in square brackets [ ], separating each value with a space. Entering  a value without using brackets appends the value to the existing configurations.

The Failure Response Codes values for Path Check Profile and Sip Ars Profile within the same zone/TG has similiar values to avoid unexpected behavior. For example, it is not advised to set Path Check Profile Failure Response Code to "all" and Sip Ars Profile Failure Response Codes to "all4xx,all6xx".

In EMA, the Failure Response Codes are configured as comma separated values. In CLI, the values of the Failure Response Code are separated by space.

This is a mandatory field.

Reply Timeout

This field is mandatory.

Note

Sonus recommends to not configure Path Check Profile and SIP ARS Profile on the same peer to avoid unexpected results. As a general rule, the Path Check Profile is configured on the access leg where there is less traffic, and the ARS Profile is configured on the peer leg where there is continuous traffic.
