    I am trying to understand how event-options work.

    I have the following:

    vQFX   .2 -------10.10.10.0/24   ------- .1 vMX    lo0.0 192.168.10.1

                   .2 ------- 10.10.20.0/24  ------- .1             

    root@vQFX-1# show routing-options | display set
    set routing-options static route 192.168.10.1/32 next-hop 10.10.10.1
    set routing-options static route 192.168.10.1/32 qualified-next-hop 10.10.20.1 preference 7

    root@vQFX-1# run show route protocol static

    inet.0: 7 destinations, 8 routes (7 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)
    + = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both

    192.168.10.1/32 *[Static/5] 03:03:07
    > to 10.10.10.1 via xe-0/0/0.10
    [Static/7] 03:03:07
    > to 10.10.20.1 via xe-0/0/0.20

    RPM

    root@vQFX-1# show services rpm | display set
    set services rpm probe failover test icmp-test probe-type icmp-ping
    set services rpm probe failover test icmp-test target address 10.10.10.1
    set services rpm probe failover test icmp-test test-interval 2
    set services rpm probe failover test icmp-test thresholds successive-loss 3

    event-options

    root@vQFX-1# show event-options | display set
    set event-options policy failover events route-failover
    set event-options policy failover within 30 trigger on
    set event-options policy failover within 30 trigger 2
    set event-options policy failover within 45 trigger until
    set event-options policy failover within 45 trigger 3
    set event-options policy failover attributes-match route-failover.test-owner matches failover
    set event-options policy failover attributes-match route-failover.test-name matches icmp-test
    set event-options policy failover then change-configuration commands "set routing-options static route 192.168.10.1 next-hop 10.10.10.1 preference 10"

    I expected to failover to 10.10.20.1 after a few pings fail.

    but it does not work.

    Any insights ?

    thanks in advance !!
