My border router has tree isp peers providers.
There is an active default route and two backups (with lower distance).
I would like to ping some internet ips (root servers for example) using those backup links.
The idea is to compare service latency between my providers.
Is there some way to force ping to go over those inactive routes ?
I already tryed with src-address and interface paramenter , but it does not work.
Im thinking about some routing policy, but im afraid I can add extra cpu load just for a ping test since my device is routing 8Gbps.
Code: Select all
ping 22.214.171.124 interface=vlan418_ITX src-address=170.94.1X6.78
Im using smokeping with OpenSSHMikrotikRouterOSPing plugin.
Any idea would be wellcome.
