Netvisor provides support for static route reachability detection using Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol. A static route entry is installed in the Routing Information Database (RIB) only if BFD is able to communicate with the gateway. After installation, BFD periodically monitors reachability and removes the route if connectivity is lost.

IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are both supported.
