IP SLA reaction-configuration for Packet Loss using ICMP jitter

Hello Experts,


I have a situation wherein I need to ping a non-cisco device at a rate of 200 pings every 5minutes i.e. send 200ping packets at the start of every 5th minute. But the main challenge is I need to configure IP SLA to generate trap or threshold exceeded syslog when the packet loss goes above 6% and threshold cleared log when the packetloss goes under 5%. I have tried it as below:


ip sla 1
icmp-jitter source-ip num-packets 200
frequency 300
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

ip sla reaction-configuration 1 react packetLoss threshold-value 6 5 threshold-type immediate action-type trapOnly


I am unable to understand how would the threshold-value and threshold-value work together. I don’t want that when the router starts the ping of 200 and if it sees packets from 50 to 56 drop to generate log. Rather I want it to complete the ping of and then determine if 6/200 crosses the threshold or not.


How can I do this?
