IP SLA issue

Good Day,

I am trying to resolve an issue using IP SLA and tracking.   I have a router that has multiple routes.  I have 2 that are over wireless connections and one that is a last resort for Cellular.  I have a issue where both wireless routes are up and i want the route with the better throughput/bandwidth at that time to be the primary route.  here is a portion on the configuration that i am working with.  any advice would be appreciated..

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.1 track 1 10

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.2 track 2 20

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.3 50 

ip sla 1

icmp-echo 10.10.10.1 source-ip 10.10.10.20

timeout 500

threshold 2

frequency 15

ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

ip sla 2

icmp-echo 10.10.10.2 source-ip 10.10.10.20

timeout 500

threshold 2

frequency 15

ip sla schedule 2 life forever start-time now

track 1 ip sla 1 reachability

delay down 30  up 45

track 2 ip sla 2 reachability

delay down 30 up 45

IP SLA issue

IP SLA cannot help you with routing traffic based on link performance (Bandwidth/delay/throughput). It can only help you with reachability.

You need PfR to intelligently route based on performance -

HI Dennis,

As Vishesh told u that:

This is absolutely correct form my point of view.

IP SLA is only used to to tack the link. If one link is dwon then another can come up.

Here is the example.

R1(config)# ip sla 1

R1(config)#icmp-echo 2.2.2.2 source-interface FastEthernet0/0

R1(config)# timeout 1000

R1(config)#threshold 2

R1(config)# frequency 3

R1(config)# ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

R1(config)# track 1 ip sla 1 reachability

R1(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 2.2.2.2 track 1

R1(config)# ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 3.3.3.3 10

You can aslo see the status of tracking by:

R1# show track

Track 1

IP SLA 1 reachability

Reachability is Down
