Hierarchy Level


Disable Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) sessions to trigger fast reroute (FRR) using MPLS-FRR and loop-free alternates (LFAs). When this statement is configured, no BFD-triggered local repair is supported. However, logical interface down-based local repair is in force.

When using this statement to disable local repair, you also must restart routing to ensure proper behavior. To restart routing, include the graceful-restart command for the interior gateway protocol (IGP) used in your configuration. For example, if your IGP is OSPF, include the graceful-restart statement at the [edit protocols ospf] hierarchy level.


BFD-triggered local repair is the default behavior. The loss of a neighbor results in BFD local repair for all next hops that derive themselves from the base next hop with which the BFD session is established.
