Static ECMP

We are trying to do ECMP with static routing and have configured 2 default routes. The "show route" command shows two default next hops, however, "netstat -r" shows only one default next hop.  We currently use 2 next hops and the ping feature to determine next hop status which seems to work well.  Does anyone know if this is achievable to load balance using statics for default route?  I know this can be done using eBGP...



Sample CLI output -


#show route
S via, eth3-01, cost 0, age 767583 
                  via, eth3-01


#netstat -r
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
default UGD 0 0 0 eth3-01
