I believe it was called something in the earlier releases of 12 (rtr or something like that).

12.4 I know supports it, possibly even 12.3

Configuring IP SLA tracking object on 12.4 or later

(config)# ip sla 1
(config)# icmp-echo source-interface FastEthernet0/0
(config)# timeout 1000
(config)# threshold 2
(config)# frequency 3
(config)# ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

(config)# track 1 ip sla 1 reachability

usage with static routing - first route is inserted into routing table as long as tracking object is reachable (AD 1), otherwise second route will be inserted into routing table (AD 5)
(config)# ip route track 1
(config)# ip route 5

You can check status of  tracking object

# show track

Check ip sla statistics

#show ip sla statistics

In your version, it may be:

Try 12.4 "T" instead of mz.  It may not be fully implanted in the version you have.

Alternatively, you could try the older rtr syntax:

rtr 1
  type echo protocol ipIcmpEcho x.x.x.x
  frequency 3
  timeout 1000
   threshold 2
rtr schedule 1 life forever start-time now

Open in new window

The rest will be similar to predrag's

I found almost all router ios are mz without T, but finally I found one which still has mz with T can work with ip sla-----unzip-c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T5.bin, but track cannot be typed with sla in one command, below is its response, it looks like it has different way to work

R3(config)#track 1 ip sla
