halt-on-prefix-down (RFC 2544 Benchmarking)


Hierarchy Level


By default, the RFC 2544-based benchmarking test ignores a prefix-down event (when the prefix associated with the test goes down) and continues to run. If this parameter is specified, a prefix that moves to the down state causes the corresponding tests to be stopped. The show command output for the test displays that the test was terminated due to the prefix going down.
