IP SLA was also covered in ROUTE studies, but I believe it should be recovered here as two types of FHRP (VRRP / GLBP) use object tracking for their thresholds to participate in their Router Groups, so very important to know solid for the SWITCH exam. Fundamentals and need to know theory for exam day … Continue reading IP SLA – Fundamentals, SLA / Scheduling configuration, Verification Commands, and important behaviors for Exam Day!
IP SLA explanation and examples of when to use it An IP SLA (Service Level Agreement) is an agreement between the Service Provider and (you) the customer, that you will get an agreed upon level of uptime / bandwidth for your money, and IP SLA configuration on a router is a mechanism to measure and … Continue reading IP SLA configuration, verification, “object tracking” configured and explained, quite an extensive subject and read so brace yourself!
You heard it, after this quick lab, got NAT and PAT to go over and the next week or so will be reading and labbing my butt off until exam day on 4/28. With that being said, this lab will piggy back on what we've learned, only this is a more practical real-world scenario that … Continue reading Tracking SLA for failover of static routes, explanation, and configuration – Almost to the end of ROUTE video series!!
To begin, I'd like to start with a stark contrast between Frame-Relay CIR (Committed Information Rate) provided by the FR provider, and IP SLA. As the FR Provider guarantees at least a certain up-time and bandwidth availability, that makes no claims for over-utilization or perfect uptime, and this helps to have those minimums in place … Continue reading IP SLA fundamentals, deep dive into explanation of operation, configuration, and verification commands / behaviors!
