Assume that the health check interval is set to 1 minute, the global TTL is set to 60 seconds, and the number of consecutive failures is set to 3. GTM can identify failures within about 3 minutes and then initiate a switchover. The switchover takes effect across the network within about 60 seconds. The actual failover period depends on the caching time that is set by carriers.
