Hierarchy Level

[edit interfaces interface-name]

Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Description

Hold-time value to use to damp interface transitions. When an interface goes from up to down, it is not advertised to the rest of the system as being down until it has remained down for the hold-time period. Similarly, an interface is not advertised as being up until it has remained up for the hold-time period.

Note: The hold-time option is not available for controller interfaces.

Default

Interface transitions are not damped.

Options

down milliseconds—Hold time to use when an interface transitions from up to down. The JUNOS Software advertises the transition within 100 milliseconds of the time value you specify.

Range: 0 through 4,294,967,295 milliseconds
Default: 0 milliseconds (interface transitions are not damped)

up milliseconds—Hold time to use when an interface transitions from down to up. The JUNOS Software advertises the transition within 100 milliseconds of the time value you specify.

Range: 0 through 4,294,967,295 milliseconds
Default: 0 milliseconds (interface transitions are not damped)
