PBF monitor behavior not working

L1 Bithead

Hello, i'm configuring two PBF in order to isolate traffic between two destinations servers on two different ISP (without fail-over).

I have configured the PBFs with a monitor profile with Wait Recover option enabled.

I see that the traffic is being properly splitted by the PBFs,  but when I simulate an ISP failure the traffic of the failing ISP passes to the other ISP instead of drop until the failing ISP recovers, what am I doing wrong?

I tried with no monitor profile first, and the result was the same. After that I've tried enabling the monitor prof.


Leave the monitor on and make sure the check box for 'Disable the rule if nexthop/monitor ip is unreachable' is not checked. Also do not enter a Next Hop IP.



I've also tried that and didn't work. Is any kind of "permanent static route" like in cisco's routers?
