  There are likely several answers to that, all dependant on your
topology and protocol use. But, a good place to start would be BFD
(bidirectional forwarding detection).  Juniper has decent support for
it working with other protocols (OSPF, ISIS, BGP, RIP), notifying them
that something may be wrong, allowing them to then make a decision
(support may differ from protocol to protocol).  That may be a good
start point.
