track resolution ip route

Configure the protocol-specific resolution value used to scale an IPv4 route metric.

Syntax
track resolution ip route {isis resolution-value | ospf resolution-value}

To return to the default setting, use the no track object-id command.

Parameters
object-id
Enter the ID number of the tracked object. The range is 1 to 500.
isis resolution-value
Enter the resolution used to convert the metric in the routing table for ISIS routes to a scaled metric.
ospf resolution-value
Enter the resolution used to convert the metric in the routing table for OSPF routes to a scaled metric.
Defaults

Usage Information

Use this command to configure the protocol-specific resolution value that converts the actual metric of an IPv4 route in the routing table to a scaled metric in the range 0 to 255.

The UP/DOWN state of a tracked IPv4 route is determined by a user-configurable threshold (the threshold metric command) for the route’s metric in the routing table. To provide a common tracking interface for different clients, route metrics are scaled in the range 0 to 255, where 0 is connected and 255 is inaccessible.

The protocol-specific resolution value calculates the scaled metric by dividing a route's cost by the resolution value set for the route protocol:
  • For ISIS, you can set the resolution in the range 1 to 1000, where the default is 10.
  • For OSPF, you can set the resolution in the range 1 to 1592, where the default is 1.
  • The resolution value used to map static routes is not configurable. By default, Dell EMC Networking OS assigns a metric of 0 to static routes.
  • The resolution value used to map RIP routes is not configurable. The RIP hop-count is automatically multiplied by 16 to scale it. For example, a RIP metric of 16 (unreachable) scales to 256, which considers the route to be DOWN.
