MultiLink Clarification

Unanswered Question
Jul 13th, 2009


I have a few sites with Multilink Connections. I have a problem where in when a T1 CKT from a a multilink bundle goes down our monitoring system does not catch the event because connectivity to the site is still works. So the question is, is it possible to assign an IP address to the individual T1 interfaces so that each T1 can be monitored (ICMP) independently.

Thanks in advance for the input.

I have this problem too.

This is not possible. The answer is to configure either snmp traps on the router to alert your Network Management System (NMS) of a down link (which could just send you an email) or to enable syslog export and parse the log output for the link up/down event and alert your NMS.

What NMS are you using for monitoring via ICMP at the moment? Very likely it can interact with either syslog or SNMP.
