Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.3.
Prevent loss of traffic in the case of NSR being configured. With the switchover-on-routing-crash configuration statement enabled, when rpd on the primary Routing Engine crashes with NSR configured, the Routing Engine will switch over immediately to the backup Routing Engine to preserve protocol state and adjacencies. Prior to having this statement, if NSR was configured and rpd on the primary Routing Engine crashed, it would cause network impact (protocol neighbor and adjacency drops and traffic loss).
