Static route with multiple next-hops

  • 1.  Static route with multiple next-hops

    Hello

     

    I need to deploy a basic type of redundancy for a system I have via static route using lowest preference:

    next-hop Node1 = 10.0.0.1 = preferred = preference 2

    next-hop Node2 = 10.0.0.2 = not preferred = default preference 5

     

     

    mkh@lab> show configuration routing-options static
    route 192.127.10.0/24 {
                next-hop 10.0.0.2;
                qualified-next-hop 10.0.0.1 {
                 preference 2;
                }
    }

    ======================

     

    mkh@lab> show route 192.127.10.0/24

    192.127.10.0/24   *[Static/2] 00:01:09
                                        > to 10.0.0.1 via ae2.114
                                       [Static/5] 00:00:14
                                        > to 10.0.0.2 via ae2.114

     

    In theory, 10.0.0.1 will stay the active route till it isn't REACHABLE 

     

    But what does it mean by reachable here?

    - Having ARP entry for?

    - pingable?

    - there is an active route to reach next-hop?

     

    In my case 10.0.0.0/24 is configured directly to ae2.114, so there is always an active route to reach both next-hops. 

     

    When I test that in the lab, 10.0.0.1 is always active even if it is down, and no ARP for.

     

    So in a few words, I need to achieve similarity to use "track" in Cisco

     

    Is the only solution to use BFD then?

    What is the platform?

    In SRX, You have IP monitoring

    In MX, You have RPM tracking

    Thx
