Router - configure Track command

Hello Experts,

I need to configure a router so that it can detect when one gateway is down.

I was told that there is a command named "track" that sends a constant ping to detect if the gateway is up. If the ping is not detected then it will be sent via route-map to the other gateway. Anyone has some links to read on this? Or perhaps a configuration example using track?

Thanks,

Randall

Re: Router - configure Track command

Yes tracking does work the way you heard, but it doesnt just use icmp but also udp or http get request. Tracking can be used in a number of ways viz with hsrp, routing, PBR etc.

If you are configuring HSRP & need to use tracking to monitor the interfaces then follow this link:

If you want to use PBR with tracking, then refer this:

hope that clarifies.
