A. Interface Duplex
B. Interface Speed
C. Alternate TCP Reset Interface
D. Interface Description
E. Interface Name
Q3. When the inline software bypass is configured to Off, which of the following is true?
A. Inline traffic continues to flow through the sensor if the analysis engine is stopped.
B. Inline traffic stops flowing through the sensor if the analysis engine is stopped.
C. Inline traffic is never inspected.
D. Inline traffic stops flowing through the sensor if the analysis engine is running.
Q4. Which of the following is not a configurable traffic-flow notification parameter?
A. Missed Packet Threshold
B. Notification Interval
C. Interface Idle Threshold
D. Maximum Packet Threshold
Q5. Which of the following statements is true?
A.You can assign promiscuous interfaces or inline interface pairs only to a virtual sensor but not both at the same time.
B. You can assign both promiscuous interfaces and inline interface pairs to a virtual sensor, but only one can be enabled at a time.
C. You can assign both promiscuous interfaces and inline interface pairs to a virtual sensor.
Q6. When defining your summertime configuration, which of the following is false?
A. You can specify a time zone for the summertime configuration.
B. You can specify only the hour (0 to 24) at which the time change will occur.
C. You can specify exact dates (such as October 23) on which the time change will occur.
D. You can specify a recurring date (such as first Sunday in October).
Q7. When making changes to the sensor’s time configuration and clock setting, which of the following is true?
A. Clicking on Apply saves your time configuration changes and updates the sensor’s clock setting.
B. Clicking on Apply save your time configuration changes, but then you must click on Apply Time to Sensor to save the changes to the sensor’s clock setting.
C. You must first click on Apply Time to Sensor to save the changes to the sensor’s clock setting and then click on Apply to save the changes to the time configuration.
D. The updates to the sensor’s clock settings occur automatically, so you need to click only on Apply to save your configuration changes.
Q8. Which parameter specifies the interval over which the missed packet percentage is calculated for traffic flow notification?
A. Notification Interval
B. Missed Packet Threshold
C. Missed Packet Interval
D. Interface Idle Threshold
E. Interface Interval
