Any plans to add alerting on backup WAN going down? There is an alert if primary fails over to backup, but wanted to find a more proactive way to find backup WAN links going down rather than logging in to find out when we need to fail over.
Agreed, we use Meraki Insight to provide these alerts.
It's also great in alerting to packet loss (we then check against a number of ping destinations to confirm that it is genuine loss on the circuit and not to a specific dst IP that is defined in the SW-WAN & traffic shaping config in the dashboard for that MX).
Tough to justify getting the Insight license just for this. Seems like it wouldn't be a hard lift for Cisco to add an alert for this, but just my opinion. They already show the status in the GUI, can alert on switch ports being up/down, and can alert on the primary uplink.
Will probably either just ping it or use the api to get status periodically.
