    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 8.1.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS 11.3 for the QFX Series.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1x53-D20 for the OCX Series.

    Description

    Configure a Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) router’s priority hold time to define the minimum length of time that must elapse between dynamic priority changes. If the dynamic priority changes because of a tracking event, the priority hold timer begins running. If another tracking event or manual configuration change occurs while the timer is running, the new dynamic priority update is postponed until the timer expires.

    Note: When the track feature is configured, and if VRRP should pre-empt due to the tracking interface or route transition, any configured pre-empt hold time will be ignored. VRRP master will pre-empt according to the configuration of the priority-hold time.

    Options

    seconds—Minimum length of time that must elapse between dynamic priority changes.

    Range: 0through 3600 seconds

    Required Privilege Level
