What is vSRX?

vSRX is a virtual firewall appliance for cloud environments. It runs as a VM on Hypervisors hosted on x86 hardware.

It is built on Juniper's OS (JunOS), however unlike FreeBSD linux used by JunOS earlier, vSRX is developed on top of Yocto Linux (WindRiver). This allows the appliance to perform better than any other Virtual Firewall in the market.

vSRX includes below features:
1. Full Stateful Firewall
2. Routing
3. VPN
4. IPS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention)
5. Application Firewall
6. Antivirus
7. AntiSpam
8. Webfiltering
9. Content-filtering
10. High Availability

[IDP Series] NIC Bypass

The Internal NICBypass helps prevent network outage due to IDP entering a hang state or experiencing high CPU utilization when the IDP device is in inline mode (transparent mode only). The internal NICBypass employs WatchDog Timers to achieve the functionality. The nicBypass script which is located in /usr/idp/device/bin/ prevents the interfaces from going into bypass mode when the IDP is working normally by resetting the watchdog timer. It also restores the interfaces to normal mode if they had gone into Bypass mode. The nicBypass script performs this check and takes the action (if required) every "loopInterval" seconds (the script 'sleeps' for "loopInterval" seconds).  These two parameters can be configured via the idp.cfg file on the IDP Sensor as shown below:                                                                                                                nicBypass.watchdogInterval             10 (secs)  nicBypass.loopInt
