Good day, I have an odd one here. I am wanting to run an IP SLA to ping another device in the network, and if it stops responding, or the interface goes into a down state. I would like it to run a shut, no shut on the interface.

I have found multiple sites saying you can accomplish this through EEM (Event manager), however this is a 2960, which is incapable of EEM.

This is also a temporary switch, which is only being used for imaging workstations.

My question is how to create the SLA to run the commands, when a ping stops responding, or if the interface goes down?

  • Is that a layer-3 interface on the switch? – Ron Maupin Jan 29 '18 at 18:41

    I also think that this an X-Y Problem. You should ask our help to determine the root cause of your problem. You should not need to perform shutdown then no shutdown as a regular thing. There is some underlying problem that you should fix. For example, is the interface going to err-disable? If so, why? – Ron Maupin Jan 29 '18 at 20:36

OK, I'll try to answer the part about how to "trigger action A when event E happens" on a device where EEM is not supported.

One way to do this would be to run a script on an external computer that has a permanent connection to the switch. This "external computer" can be one of your existing workstations, or a new workstation that you procure for the purpose or maybe even a small single-board computer (like one well-known product in the $5 - $35 price range which I cannot name here :-)) running nothing but the OS and your script.
