link-protection (Dynamic LSPs)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.


Enable link protection on the specified LSP, which helps to ensure that traffic sent over a specific interface to a neighboring router can continue to reach the router if that interface fails. For point-to-multipoint LSPs, including this statement extends link protection to all of the paths used by the LSP.

To fully enable link protection, you must also include the link-protection statement at the [edit protocols rsvp interface interface-name] or [edit logical-systems logical-system-name protocols rsvp interface interface-name] hierarchy level.


Link protection is disabled.
