Note

<About interface settings>
  • It does not connect to the logical network (storage plane), but only connect to the logical network (data plane).

  • Reserved IP addresses are IP addresses that are pre-reserved for each interface in order for upgrades of software version and plan changes of managed load balancer to be performed without compromising managed load balancer redundancy.

  • It is necessary to specify four reserved IP addresses for each interface regardless of the SINGLE plan or HA plan.

  • The address specified by the virtual IP address (VIP) cannot be used as the reserved IP address.

  • Please do not use the IP address set as the reserved IP address for the physical interface of your other device, the permitted IP address, etc.

  • You cannot change the virtual IP address and reserved IP address of the interface once connected. If you want to change it, you need to delete and recreate the interface.

<About syslog server settings>
  • In the access log acquisition/forward setting, the access log is forwarded to the customer's syslog server. For forwarding, the load balancing function of Managed Load Balancer is used and adopt ICMP as the health check method. If you can confirm the Ping response from the Managed Load Balancer to the syslog server, you will be able to forward the access log. Please configure the network and syslog server so that Ping response from the Managed Load Balancer to the syslog server can be checked.

  • Up to two destination syslog servers can be set.
    -When protocol is TCP:Access logs are forwarded to both of the two devices.
    -When protocol is UDP:Access logs are forwarded to only one device. The upper setting frame (first syslog server) of two setting frames has priority. The health check is executed by ICMP, and if the health check to the upper setting frame(first syslog server) fails, forwarding will switch to the lower setting frame(second syslog server).
