HSRP ip routing tracking

Unanswered Question
Dec 16th, 2008

I have 3 routers- see diagram. R2 is active hsrp with R1. what i am trying to do is track ip routing eth0/2 and eth0/3 on R2. if both interfaces loose EIGRP routes from R3, them decrement hsrp priority to 20. based on the configuration below, it looks like the tracking ip-routing only monitor the line-protocol for the interfaces not the routing reachability. can someone perhaps advise how to go about using hsrp based on ip routing (eigrp) on R2.

track 1 interface Ethernet0/2 ip routing


track 2 interface Ethernet0/3 ip routing


track 100 list boolean and

object 1

object 2




interface Ethernet0/0

no ip address




interface Ethernet0/1

ip address


standby 1 ip

standby 1 timers 1 3

standby 1 priority 115

standby 1 preempt delay minimum 60

standby 1 authentication secret

standby 1 name LAB

standby 1 track 100 decrement 20

R2#sh ip route eigrp

D [90/409600] via, 00:00:15, Ethernet0/3

[90/409600] via, 00:00:15, Ethernet0/2

D [90/307200] via, 00:00:15, Ethernet0/1

[90/307200] via, 00:00:15, Ethernet0/3

[90/307200] via, 00:00:15, Ethernet0/2

R2#sh standby brief

P indicates configured to preempt.


Interface Grp Prio P State Active Standby Virtual IP

Et0/1 1 115 P Active local

I have this problem too.

Hello Francisco,

see the following link the ip route option


track object-number ip route ip-address/prefix-length {metric threshold | reachability}

metric threshold I think is AD, reachability if it can be accessed

so if this works define track for some routes of interest that are learned from EIGRP

Hope to help
