configure esrp add track-ping

configure esrp esrpDomain add track-ping ipaddress frequency seconds miss misses


Configures an ESRP (Extreme Standby Router Protocol) domain to track an external gateway using ping.

Syntax Description

esrpDomain Specifies an ESRP domain name.
ipaddress Specifies the IPv4 address of the external gateway.
seconds Specifies the interval in seconds between ping requests. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.
misses Specifies the number of consecutive ping failures that initiates failover to an ESRP slave. The range is 1 to 256 pings.


No ping tracking.

Usage Guidelines

The tracked-ping metric consists of the total number of stations that are successfully tracked using ping. ESRP uses an aggregate of tracked pings and traced routes to track an external gateway.

An ESRP domain can track eight stations.



ESRP ping tracking is not supported on IPv6 networks.


The following command enables ping tracking for the external gateway at, pinging every 10 seconds, and considering the gateway to be unreachable if no response is received to 5 consecutive pings:

configure esrp esrp1 add track-ping frequency 10 miss 5


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
