Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.
Specify the maximum number of routers that an LSP can traverse. This limit can be applied to any of the following:
LSPs—The configured hop limit includes the ingress and egress routers. You can specify a hop limit for an LSP and for both primary and secondary paths.
Fast reroute detour—Specify the number of additional routers a fast reroute detour can traverse relative to the protected LSP. For example, if an LSP traverses 4 routers, any detour for the LSP can be no more than 10 router hops, including the ingress and egress routers.
Link protection bypass—Specify the maximum number of routers that a link protection bypass can traverse.
number—Maximum number of hops.
Range: 2 through 255 (for an LSP or for a link protection bypass); 0 through 255 (for fast reroute)
Default: 255 (for an LSP or for a link protection bypass); 6 (for fast reroute)
