lets say i have 2 routes with different metrics.

1) via

2) via

I want to track an object that is not directly connected or same vlan. lets say it is

and i have the route via how can i select the route bases on that object status through the ICMP or other mechanisms in cisco 3750 switch.

Re: 3750: Route tracking feature

I've used this in routers, but I'm not sure if it's available in Cisco Catalyst series switches. Reliable Static Route Backup using Object Tracking.

Or, you can try route-maps w/ set ip next-hop verify-availability. Again, never tried on a switch but used on routers.

Lastly, if neither work, why not use static floating routes for that specific subnet? If one link fails, the other will take over automatically.

ip route 200

ip route 210

Re: 3750: Route tracking feature

I know this will work but (this is not required) i want to track the ip address in another subnet which is 2/3 hops away to change the route. want to use the tracking objects.
