OSPF will not do that.

You could use EEM for that, but I would be vary, as a proper calculation of trigger levels is not trivial.

Beside, why would you want to do that? Packet drops are caused by excess traffic, and if you shut down the link, you will have no way to carry even normal traffic.

Hello Binu,

EEM should do it for you.

For all EEM related question, post your question under "Network Management" where Joe Clark can further assist you. He's the EEM script expert.
