Hi,


The below link contains all the details regarding IP SLA parameters you are asking about:


http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios124/124cg/hsla_c/hsicmp.htm


NOTE: In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(14)T, the Cisco IOS Service Assurance Agent (SAA) feature was replaced by the Cisco IOS IP Service Level Agreement (IP SLA), accordingly the "rtr" command was replaced by the "ip sla monitor" command.


As for the reachability keyword with the track command, when configuring enhanced tracking you can use either state (the default) or reachability.


Router(config)#track 1 rtr 1 ?

reachability Reachability

state Return code state


The difference between these states relates to the acceptance of the OverThreshold return code, i always use reachability as the OverThreshold is most commonly not an issue, please check this link:
