Hierarchy Level


When BFD is control plane dependent and the device detects a BFD down event and is not already entering the graceful restart helper mode, this is treated as a regular BFD down event and the device enters the graceful restart helper mode. This behavior makes the control plane dependent BFD unusable in conjunction with graceful restart.

Include the dont-help-shared-fate-bfd-down statement at the [edit protocols bgp graceful-restart] hierarchy to ensures that the device does not enter the graceful restart helper mode and data traffic continues to be fowarded to an alternate path even if there is an interface failure (without a control plane restart on the BGP neighbor).


By default, this option is not enabled.
