BGP Failover Question

As Max stated, you can set triggers based on thresholds that are monitered
via multiple methods in Cisco IOS. That way you could force the route down
dynamically. There's always a risk when letting the machines do the thinking
but this would help in situations like this. Can't speak for other vendors
but I'm sure the features are similar.
