Example: Configuring Ethernet LFM Between PE and CE
In this example, LFM is enabled on an IP link between the provider edge (PE) and customer edge (CE) interfaces. If the link goes down, the fault will be detected by LFM and the interfaces on both sides will be marked Link-Layer-Down. This results in notifications to various subsystems (for example, routing) which will take appropriate action.
The link running LFM is shown in Figure 1.
