With auto-key keep alive enabled, before the negotiated keys expire (both phase 1 and phase 2), the keys will be renegotiated. So traffic can pass through without being delayed (it happens when no keys are available).

THanks. I was wondering because i was getting complaints from users that after idle usage they would get kicked out of their programs. I enabled it and it seems like that solved the problem
