Generally, HSRP can track individual interface status, it does not matter if it is in bundled MLPPP or not, however it may lead to situation that interfaces are up and there is no traffic flow. So it would be better to configure IP SLA, but in that case you can't track individual interfaces.
Just an idea, you could configure IP SLA to track delay.
If you establish baseline with all links bundled in MLPPP IP SLA can react when delay time is changed - that would influence packetization and serialization delay, but I guess it need to be tested, I never tried to do it so far (but I guess it could be done this way).

That sounds like a good idea. I will set it up in GNS3. Now, for testing purposes, once I shut down 1 of the mlppp links, is there a way to generate a large amount of traffic? Thanks
