  • 1.  Using RPM to track the next-hop of a static route (MX960)

    Posted 10-11-2022 13:50
    Hi All,

    Is there anyway of using RPM to track the reachability of a static route's next-hop address (using rpm-tracking and ICMP ping etc) so that IF the next-hop becomes unreachable (and the RPM test fails) the static/rpm-tracking route is withdrawn from the routing-table and becomes invalid for redistribution into BGP etc.?

    And before you all shout "Use BFD!" ... well sadly I can't used BFD for the static route because the router at the other end (i.e. the owner of the next-hop address) doesn't support BFD! :-)

    P.S. I have an L2 switch between my MX960 (running Junos: 19.3R2-S2.2) and the router at the other end - hence the question!

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    I'm aware of ip-monitoring, but sadly it's not available on the MX series ... hence my question!
