Having a “small” problem with HSRP.

ASCII Network Diagram

[switch-a1]--[router-a1]--[ISP 1 Cloud]--[router-b1]--[switch-b1]--- Active Link
|          |                           |              |
[switch-a2]--[router-a2]--[ISP 1 Cloud]--[router-b1]--[switch-b2]--- Standby Link

I configured HSRP all on devices. My problem is, when a switch-a1 fails, router-a1 fails over to router-a2. but router-b1 will not fail over as the link between router-a1 and router-b1 via ISP 1 is still up.

I tried HSRP tracking, but the best tracking method I found is IP Route Reachability.
Track shows the object is up if the gateway to that network is still in your routing table.

so even configuring “track 100 ip route reachability” doesn’t work, as the gateway is added manually as a static route.

Sample Config from Cisco.
