link-protection (RSVP)


Hierarchy Level


Enable link protection on the specified interface. Using link protection, you can configure a network to reroute traffic quickly around broken links. To fully enable link protection, you also need to configure the link-protection statement at the [edit protocols mpls label-switched-path lsp-name] hierarchy level. You can configure single or multiple bypasses for protected interface.


Link protection is disabled.


no-node-protection—Disable node-link protection on the RSVP interface. Link protection remains active. When this option is configured, the router can only initiate a next-hop bypass, not a next-next-hop bypass.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
