Hierarchy Level


(MX Series routers only) Enable you to switch an LSP away from a network node using a bypass LSP. This feature could be used in maintenance of active networks when a network device needs to be replaced without interrupting traffic passing through the network. The LSPs can be either static or dynamic.

This statement marks all OAM traffic transiting this interface in preparation for switching the traffic to an alternate path based on the OAM functionality. To switch traffic to the bypass LSP, you then need to configure the switch-away-lsps statement.
