Cisco ip sla monitor implementation
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have a router which i want to configure ip sla monitor on. This rouer supports ip sla monitor configs.
i intend to use the command:
ip sla monitor 1
type echo protocol ipIcmpEcho 220.127.116.11 source-ip addr 18.104.22.168
Please note that 22.214.171.124 is a loopback address on the router.
Now my question is : Can i use a loopback address as the source address when configuring ip sla monitor.
Or does it have to be a physical interface?
In my own case, the address 126.96.36.199 is a loopback address, so i am not sure of its workability.
Also, the loopback address (188.8.131.52) from above is a tunnel(gre) destination for a remote site.So , i am not sure if i can use the same loopback address as the source address for my ip sla monitor configuration. Or do i have to configure another loopback interface on the router say; i
interface loopback 2
ip address 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.255.
