bgp graceful-restart

Syntax

[ no | default ] bgp graceful-restart

Release Information

Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.

Description

Enables the BGP graceful restart capability globally, which enables BGP to maintain its forwarding state during a peer restart, avoiding network-wide route flaps and interruptions in traffic forwarding. Graceful restart is disabled by default. The default version restores the default condition, wherein graceful restart is disabled, and consequently, advertisement of the BGP graceful restart capability is stopped. The no version disables the graceful restart capability.

Note: The E Series router supports graceful restart, both as a receiving peer and a restarting peer.
