Application operation in emergency mode

Kaspersky Web Traffic Security switches to emergency mode if the system has two or more Master servers. For example, the Master server became unavailable and the Master server role was assigned to the Secondary master server. Eventually the Master server became available again leaving the system with two Master servers.

Emergency mode does not affect the function of Worker servers. Worker servers continue to process network traffic using the latest settings received from the Master server before the application switched to emergency mode.

The emergency mode window on the Master server displays the following information:

The table of Master servers and Secondary master servers contains the following columns:

A kwts_icon_alarm icon in the row of the table means that the relevant server encountered a problem. For example, a Secondary master server mistakenly became a Master server, or the server is not available on the network.

If you want to relegate the control of the application to another server, you can assign the Secondary master server role to the current Master server by clicking Assign Secondary master role.

The emergency mode window on the Secondary master server displays the following information:

The Secondary master server table contains the following columns:
