I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Generally, you would use tracking object (IP SLA) to track if some remote destination is available. If tracking object is equal FALSE (object not reachable through preferred WAN interface) then other WAN interface should be used for traffic forwarding. So, two static routes with tracking object should be created. When primary default route is not able to forward traffic to destination secondary default route should be placed in routing table instead of primary default route.

Do you have separate IP address range that is used for natting, other than IP address ranges that are present on your WAN interfaces?
The reason for asking than question is - if you are natting traffic with IP address range that is present on each WAN interface than all TCP sessions will be broken during failover.

Just like Predrag Jovic said, (IP SLA) is generally the way to go with this one.  However, you are able to use EEM scripts and accomplish the same thing.

ask youre provider to do dynamic routing with BGP on the 2 uplinks.
this will make it much more stabele. and fail over is full automated.

to have full redundancy you have to buy a second router. and do vrrp on the local side
and ibp to redir the routes and ebgp to youre provider. then youre setup is perfect
