    Our company's two branches are connected via 2 E1's bundled into 1 multilink:

    Router1:
    interface Serial2/1
    bandwidth 2048
    ip address x.x.x.1 255.255.255.252
    encapsulation ppp
    ip route-cache flow
    no fair-queue
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink group 1
    end

    interface Serial2/2
    bandwidth 2048
    ip address y.y.y.1 255.255.255.252
    encapsulation ppp
    ip route-cache flow
    no fair-queue
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink group 1
    end

    interface Multilink1
    description E1 Multilink
    ip address z.z.z.1 255.255.255.252
    no ip redirects
    no ip unreachables
    no ip proxy-arp
    ip route-cache flow
    no ip route-cache cef
    load-interval 30
    fair-queue 64 16 0
    no cdp enable
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink fragment delay 1
    ppp multilink interleave
    ppp multilink group 1
    end


    Router2:

    interface Serial1/1
    bandwidth 2048
    ip address x.x.x.2 255.255.255.252
    encapsulation ppp
    ip route-cache flow
    no fair-queue
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink group 1
    end

    interface Serial1/2
    bandwidth 2048
    ip address y.y.y.2 255.255.255.252
    encapsulation ppp
    ip route-cache flow
    no fair-queue
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink group 1
    end

    interface Multilink1
    description E1 Multilink
    ip address z.z.z.2 255.255.255.252
    no ip redirects
    no ip unreachables
    no ip proxy-arp
    ip route-cache flow
    no ip route-cache cef
    load-interval 30
    fair-queue 64 16 0
    no cdp enable
    ppp multilink
    ppp multilink fragment delay 1
    ppp multilink interleave
    ppp multilink group 1
    end

    Multilink is working. My question is how will I be able to monitor the individual E1's? Once I make them a member of the multilink, I can no longer ping the individual interfaces.

    So, I added these commands:
    ip route x.x.x.2 255.255.255.252 z.z.z.2
    ip route y.y.y.2 255.255.255.252 z.z.z.2

    Now, I can ping the individual interfaces, but the ping response shows the "joined" response of the 2 E1's. How can I monitor the performance(latency, etc) of the individual E1's?

    Thanks.
