LDP and RSVP-TE Interface Profile Configuration Tasks

The interface profile configuration tasks are optional tasks you may need to perform to configure your network’s label distribution options.

LDP and RSVP-TE interface profile configuration tasks include the following sets of tasks:

LDP Interface Profile Configuration Tasks and Commands

Creating or accessing an LDP interface profile places the CLI in LDP Configuration mode.

  1. Access LDP profile configuration mode.
    host1(config)#mpls ldp interface profile ldp5
  2. Configure LDP interface profile settings, changing the values from the implicit default values.
    host1(config-ldp)#hello hold-time 30 host1(config-ldp)#hello interval 10

RSVP-TE Interface Profile Configuration Tasks and Commands

Creating or accessing an RSVP-TE interface profile places the CLI in RSVP Configuration mode. When you have completed the interface profile configuration tasks, you may want to proceed to the section MPLS Interface Configuration Tasks.

  1. Access the desired profile configuration mode.
    host1(config)#mpls rsvp interface profile rsvp4
  2. Configure interface profile settings to define the RSVP tunnel timeout period by specifying the timeout period in milliseconds between generation of RSVP refresh messages, the number of refresh messages that can be lost before the PATH or RESV state is ended, or both.
    host1(config-rsvp)#refresh-period 60000 host1(config-rsvp)#cleanup-timeout-factor 9

See MPLS Overview, RSVP-TE Messages and Sessions for more information about the RSVP tunnel timeout period.
