Configuring the BFD Protocol

The Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol uses control packets and shorter detection time limits to more rapidly detect failures in a network. Also, because they are adjustable, you can modify the BDF timers for more or less aggressive failure detection.

NOTE: BFD works with a wide variety of routing protocols. However, the JUNOSe software currently supports only OSPFv2 configuration of BFD.


When two BFD-enabled interfaces are connected, the various parameters of the session are negotiated as follows:

ip ospf bfd-liveness-detection

license bfd

show license bfd
