Static Route Path Monitoring
Open, Requires assessmentPublicFEATURE REQUEST


Hello all,
sometimes it's not possible to do dynamic routing because not all peers supports it.
As fallback static routes are used.
I would like to see the possibility to monitor static routes by some kind of health checks like ping.
(Like Palo Alto does)

It's not the same as WAN load balancing because the PBR would add other complexity.

Hi adestis, what you descripe is possible to do today with the help of a shellscript and the crontab, if you are interested i could help you create a script that does this for you, the one drawback is that the failover-time is in the ballpark of minutes, and the routes are not present in the configuration... Also, cron fills the log with messages every time it executed

Hello runar,
I know that it's possible to do it manually.
But I really would like to see a more integrated solution where you can add a check for the next hop inside the configuration.

A solution based on cron might be not so ideal because of the minimum time of 1 minute.
