configure esrp add track-ping

configure esrp esrpDomain add track-ping ipaddress {frequency seconds} {miss misses} {success successes}


Configures an ESRP 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.
frequency Specifies setting the interval between ping requests.
seconds Sets the value for the interval in seconds between ping requests. The range is 1 to 600 seconds. Default is 15.
miss Specifies the number of consecutive ping fails required for tracking fail.
misses Sets the number of consecutive failed pings to declare tracking has failed. Range is 1 to 256. Default is 4.
success Specifies setting the number of consecutive ping successes required for tracking success.
successes Sets the number of consecutive successful pings to declare tracking has succeeded. Range is 1 to 256. Default is 4.


No ping tracking.

Ping successes required for tracking to succeed is 4 by default.

Ping fails required for tracking to fails is 4 by default.

The interval between ping requests is 15 seconds by default.

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.

To change any of the options for track-ping, you must delete track-ping on the ESRP domain (configure esrp esrpDomain delete track-ping ipaddress ), and then configure it as desired.

To view track-ping options, use the command show esrp { {name} | {type [vpls-redundancy | standard]} } .


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.

The success option was added in ExtremeXOS 22.6.
