    Reth is short for Redundant Ethernet interface. These are used on clusters of two SRX devices as part of the failover mechanism.

    With Redundant ethernet a pair of ports back each other up.  Only one of the two ports is active at a time and one port is on each member of the cluster.

    Groups are created with the Reth interfaces in them that failover as a group between the cluster members when a failover event occurs.  This keeps systems communications working during the failure event.
