Can ASA check the health of a site-to-site VPN for route tracking

The ASA "track" command can use an SLA, but it looks like SLA monitor only supports ICMP type as a health check.  We would like to redistribute and use a static route only if the appropriate VPN link is up.

We have multiple sites, each with an OSPF area 0, so we don't want to enable OSPF routing over the VPN links.  With IOS routers, we use tunnel interfaces with IPSEC encapsulation.  Since each end of the tunnel has an IP, pinging the tunnel IP of the other end is a good indication that the tunnel is up.

Is there a way to get this functionality on an ASA?

You can enable DPD (dead peer detection) feature and use RRI (reverse route injection) to install static routes to remote VPN subnets. Than you can redistribute it to the OSPF.

HTH. Please rate if it was helpful. Thank you.
