Configuring BFD

You configure BFD on routing protocols that use BFD for fast failure detection. BFD does not require any stand-alone configuration; it works in conjunction with the application that it is supporting. Applications on which you configure BFD pass configuration information to BFD when they need fast failure detection.

BFD works with a wide variety of routing protocols. The JunosE Software currently supports only a few of these protocols. All BFD supported clients provide the ability to configure session parameters for each interface. Refer to the following table for added configuration information:
