Hierarchy Level


Allows LDP to establish BFD sessions for all ECMP paths configured for the specified FEC. If you configure the ecmp statement, you must also configure the periodic-traceroute statement for the specified FEC. If you do not do so, the commit operation fails. You can configure the periodic-traceroute statement at the global hierarchy level ([edit protocols ldp oam]) while only configuring the ecmp statement for a specific FEC ([edit protocols ldp oam fec address bfd-liveness-detection]).
