    neighbor timers

    Syntax

    neighbor { ipAddress | ipv6Address | peerGroupName } timers keepaliveTime holdTime

    no neighbor { ipAddress | ipv6Address | peerGroupName } timers [ keepaliveTime ]
    [ holdTime ]

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
    ipv6Address variable added in JunosE Release 8.0.0.

    Description

    Sets keepalive and hold-time timers for the specified neighbor or peer group. Overrides values set for the router with the timers bgp command. The no version restores the default values.

    Options

    • ipAddress—IP address of BGP neighbor
    • ipv6Address—IPv6 address of BGP neighbor
    • peerGroupName—Name of a BGP peer group. If you specify a BGP peer group by using the peerGroupName argument, all the members of the peer group inherit the characteristic configured with this command, unless it is overridden for a specific peer.
    • keepaliveTime—Interval in seconds between keepalive messages, in the range 0–65535 seconds; default value is 30 seconds; a value of zero prevents BGP from sending keepalive messages
    • holdTime—Period in seconds that BGP waits for keepalive messages before declaring the neighbor to be unavailable, in the range 0–65535 seconds; default value is 90 seconds; a value of zero informs BGP not to expect any keepalive messages

    Mode

    Address Family Configuration, Router Configuration
