PBR(Policy-Based Routing) with IP SLA ICMP-jitter



I'm testing currently PBR(Policy-Based Routing) with IP SLA ICMP-jitter(Packet Loss base) on simulation setup before applying it to the production network.

It seems the SLA is measured properly, but the PBR route is not down with threthold value of Packet loss.

Below is my configuration.

This is my first time using ICMP-jitter option, thus I am not sure whether I've configured properly or not.

I hope experties can help me for this.

Your pbr ip next hop is the ipsla source?
Also the traffic you seem to want to policy route a /30 subnet is this correct?

I don't know a lot about this type of operation BUT 
IP sla monitor with trigger-only <- this IP sla check the link statistic and then if the pass threshold it will trigger another IP sla.

this type of IP sla not use for reachability it use for VoIP QoS and RSVP.

so I think it misconfig.
