Delays the switch over of LSPs to newly optimized paths. You only need to configure this statement on routers acting as the ingress for the affected LSPs (you do not need to configure this statement on transit or egress routers). The specified delay helps to ensure that the new optimized paths have been established before traffic is switched over from the old paths.
