Keeping connections active when HOT_FAILOVER is enabled

When the HOT_FAILOVER feature is enabled by the APPLIANCE_SERVER_LIST parameter, all connection types (POLICY and ASC) for each connected GuardiumĀ® appliance are kept active by pings.

If the primary appliance becomes unavailable and failover occurs, the appliance policy that was originally pushed from the primary appliance continues to be active. When all Guardium appliances are connected, the status of each appliance connection, listed in the Guardium interface, is green.
