clear bfd adaptation



Clear adaptation for Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) sessions. BFD is a simple hello mechanism that detects failures in a network. Configured BFD interval timers can change, adapting to network situations. Use this command to return BFD interval timers to their configured values.

The clear bfd adaptation command is hitless, meaning that the command does not affect traffic flow on the routing device.
