Cisco Catalyst SD-WAN Layer 7 Health Check

For Cisco Catalyst SD-WAN (formerly known as Viptela) devices, Umbrella supports Layer 7 health checks of the CDFW and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) service through the tunnel. Monitoring network tunnels with Layer 7 health checks helps to ensure tunnel high availability and resiliency. Cisco Catalyst SD-WAN devices support automated tunnel failover between the primary and standby tunnel depending on the result of the Layer 7 health check.

  • The URL for the health check is The Umbrella health check service is only accessible through a tunnel.
