Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.


Enable periodic reoptimization of an LSP that is already set up. If topology changes occur, an existing path might become suboptimal, and a subsequent recomputation might be able to determine a better path. This option is useful only on LSPs for which constrained-path computation is enabled; that is, for which the no-cspf statement is not configured.

To avoid extensive resource consumption that might result because of frequent path recomputations, or to avoid destabilizing the network as a result of constantly changing LSPs, we recommend that you either leave the timer value sufficiently large or disable the timer value.


The optimize timer is disabled.


seconds—Length of the optimize timer, in seconds.

Range: 0 through 65,535 seconds
