General Information

This is not a complete guide more of common fixes and handy tools.


  • Backup of your configs.

First we'll create a IP SLA tracker to ping an internet address. Here, we're defining what constitutes a failure.

Threshold: If a ping RTT exceeds this, it's considered a fail.

Timeout: This is how long the router will wait on a ping, before it's considered a fail.

-Note: Threshold and timeout are in milliseconds. Frequency is in seconds.

ip sla 1   
threshold 500
timeout 1000  
frequency 5 
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now
track 1 ip sla 1 reachability 

Next we'll configure the default route, and associate it with the tracker we just created.

ip route track 1

Now we'll add our backup route.

ip route 10
