A new setting Default IP_Route Connectivity Polling is added under the Routers category in the Polling tab of the Polling and Thresholds Console. By default, this setting is available for all routers and when the AnalysisMode for this setting is enabled, a new class IP_Route gets created.

The new class has a HostedBy relationship with the router and the new class monitors the IP route default entry. Whenever the entry is not present, that is, the value is not there in the MIB entry, the MissingDefaultRoute event is generated.
