If a router has two links with different bandwidths terminating on the same destination router and configured with static routes. At what stage if the primary link fails will the traffic be routed over the second link.
I would be interestedt in a configuration or information matching this criteria or any info would be greatly appreciated.
If the destination router is the same and the links have two separate interface addresses you can simply add the "distance metric" to insure the primary and secondary order are followed. The static route statement will look similar to:
ip route 10.25.25.25 255.255.255.255 10.50.50.5 200
This would be used only for the secondary link path.
As the prior post indicated, you need to weight static routes with administrative distance before one will be preferred over another (static routes don't consider link bandwidth).
As for failover, the primary static route will be removed from the routing table when the link it points to changes state to 'down'. "Points to" in this case refers to either the referenced interface in a route like "ip route 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0 eth0" (ethernet0) or the interface through which the next-hop is reachable in a route like "ip route 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.0 220.127.116.11" (18.104.22.168 is the next-hop).
