Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD)

SUMMARY Read this topic to know about the support for Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) in the Juniper Cloud-Native router.

The Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol is a simple hello mechanism that detects failures in a network. A pair of routing devices exchange BFD packets. The devices send hello packets at a specified, regular interval. The device detects a neighbor failure when the routing device stops receiving a reply after a specified interval. The cloud-native router supports BFD. Review the Understanding BFD topic for more information.
