This monitor catches Xian events that notifies when the Session outgoing traffic if has changed its state.

Knowledge Base article:

Summary

Outgoing session traffic is over/under threshold.

Over threshold: The amount of Kbits per second of outgoing session traffic is above the maximum threshold configured in Xian Network Manager 2012.

Under threshold: The amount of Kbits per second of outgoing session traffic is under the minimum threshold configured in Xian Network Manager 2012.

Causes

Over threshold: Either the network requirement has increased outpacing your predicted value of outgoing traffic or unnecessary traffic is being sent out.

Under threshold: Either the network requirement is below your predicted value of outgoing traffic or you might be excessively restricting outgoing traffic.

Resolutions

Over threshold: In order to protect the VPN gateway, Cisco provides the ability to configure filters on outgoing traffic through software updates. Add rules that restrict outgoing traffic on ports, or appropriate rules to the filters for the interfaces, so that connections are allowed only from trusted client hosts.

Under threshold: Review the filters you are applying to restrict outgoing traffic on ports, or for the interfaces so that connections are being limited excessively on trusted client hosts.
