Hi Tsung,

It seems that there is something supporting your Downtimes. IDS in
itself cannot bring downtime. It has to work in promiscuous
mode/transparent mode, but cannot drop any communication. It will only
alert you.

1. In your case it seems that IDS has been configured, but not
normalized. Check for FALSE POSITIVE ALERTS which your device is
sending. If count is high, then you need to contact your vendor and get
it resolved.
2. Please share, Which type of downtime you are facing, is a particular
vlan is down or whole network under IDS is down?
3. Also, as Mr Sharma has said, what makes you think that it's actually
the IDS creating the problem.

Regards,
Nutan Vishwakarma

Hi Shang Tsung,

How do you determine that it's the IDS causing this trouble?

Thanks and Regards
Sharma
