object tracking and lowest switch its available on

Unanswered Question
Apr 3rd, 2007

Anyone know what the lowest switch is you can get object tracking on? I get from Cisco sales that you cant get object tracking on a switch, it has to be a router??? With all the layer 3 switches out there, I sure would have thought different...

I have this problem too.

Yeah, for HSRP is correct, thanks Sundar. But I happen to need object tracking for monitoring two isp links. Any idea on that? I notice that on the 3560, it doesnt support the "ip sla .. " command.

It doesn't look like reliable static route using object tracking is an option with 3560. Cisco might add support for this feature in the future IOS releases and you might want to check with Cisco channel about it. It appears the hardware mayn't be limitation as the existing version supports object tracking with HSRP.

Would you happen to know the lowest switch available for this feature?

I did some digging in and didn't find anything on CCO that would indicate the switches support this feature. After all your Cisco Sales may be correct. That's surprising none of the switches would support this!!

Someone from Cisco on this forum can shed some light on this and may be able to point you in the right direction..

Good Luck!!
