Route Management with IP-SLA

Hi guys,

I need help to configure with IP-SLA help that a default route is propagated as long as the condition of the IP-SLA is fulfilled. Please someone tell me if this is possible in aruba computers, the model I am configuring is JL071A with version KB.16.02.0013. For more detail, I need to propagate the default route as long as the core switch has an internet connection.


I hope you can help me.

Re: Route Management with IP-SLA



The IP-SLA purpose at Aruba switches is for helps administrators collect information about network performance in real time.


The IP SLA feature provides:

• Application-aware monitoring that simulates actual protocol packets.

• Predictable measures that aid in ease of deployment and help with assessment of existing network performance.

• Accurate measures of delay and packet loss for time-sensitive applications.

• End-to-end measurements to represent actual user experience.


There is some IP-SLA where you can take action if some threshold is crossed an they are:


• trap: Send snmp-trap when configured threshold is hit.

• log: Only log the event when configured threshold is hit.

• trap-log: Send snmp-trap and log the event when configured threshold is hit.

• none: Take no action.




According to what are you asking for is currently not possible by the switch alone. We encourage to use dynamic routing by OSPF.


If it helps please add Kudos

Re: Route Management with IP-SLA

This is really easy on Cisco switches and has been an available feature in IOS for years - it's basically causing me quite a bit of grief that there is no way on ArubaOS to do this on the switch and no available examples for setting up "dynamic routing by OSPF" on ArubaOS to deal with this limitation.

I have raised a Feature Request for exactly this: The Feature Request ID is: SWITCH-I-336
