Hierarchy Level


Enable an LSP to monitor the status of its destination PE router. You can configure multiple backup PE router groups using the same router's address. Backup PE router groups provide ingress PE router redundancy when point-to-multipoint LSPs are configured for multicast distribution. A failure of this LSP indicates to all of the backup PE router groups that the destination PE router is down. This statement is not tied to a specific backup PE router group. It applies to all groups that are interested in the status of the LSP to the destination address.
